This is a lovely memorial surrounded by forest. I found it quite moving walking down the path between the trees. Well worth a visit.

Typical seems like such a lame word to use, but in terms of Ukraine, this is very typical. Nearly every Ukrainian village/town/city has a WW2 memorial, many of them really big.
