“Look more like marshmellows than dumplings”

Poltava Dumplings Monument
Ranked #4 of 86 things to do in Poltava
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 January 2017

I like artwork, the concept of this art and everything but the "marshmellow" dumplings in this work. Whomever made dumplings look like marshmellows appears to have no idea what the dumplings look or taste like here. They are the joke of Poltava and any tourist who finds out about them.

Visited with my girlfriend and translator for photo opportunity. We went quite early to beat the crowds.

This type of places is for 'been here done that' people. I didn't know that Poltava dumplings are famous. When I see the monument I know they are.

As a foreigner I initially failed to see the importance of this sculpture but after several explanations I understand the local (Ukraine) pride and accept that it is a legitimate attraction.

Even though located in a nice place, this particular monument is rather unimpressive and unimaginative. Locals do not like it. But if you like to be photographed in a gigantic spoon next to stones imitating dumplings - then it is a place for you to go )
