Well, what do you expect? It is a rather small statue of a hedgehog. Not worth stopping at unless they are your "thing".

A hidden square, but if you are near take a look on it. Afterall, it is just another sculpture to cheer up the city, with not too many sights.

we only found out it existed thanks to our free walking tour guide anna #annaway. who also explained what the statue is for. it is close to the gold gate and a nice distraction (urban fun statue) from the churches and statues

Not not be to my taste because I wasn't intentionally looking for it and it wasn't on my list of things to see. But if you're heading from the Golden Gate north to St. Sophia, then you'll likely see it just to the north on...More

When I saw pics in Tripadvisor about this hedgehog, I was sure, that I want to see it. In reality its smaller than seems on photos, but still very special. His phenomena cant be described... Hedgehog's meaning (in fog) is understandable only for my generation...More

By far the best hedgehog monument I've ever seen, but this is first one I've ever seen so..... jmeem42016's earlier post on this page and his directions were spot on. Follow these and you'll find hoggy in quick time.

Hedgehog has a strong meaning for locals, bringing back memories of childhood. It's a good way to introduce old Soviet culture through cartoons.

Because hedgehogs were always one of my favorite animals, and I even had a tame hedgehog in my childhood, to see this monument was one of our priority. Even to read about it fired up my memories, about rescuing him, walking with him, having fun...More
