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 )
Halushki/Galushki dumplings are unique to Poltava. This place is at the Southern end of October / Zhovtneva Street, beyond the church. It is traditional that you must be photographed here - as the only proof that you visited Poltava !
