  • Guys, we got acquainted with this interesting object located on the eponymous square at the end of March 2019. The monument is impressive and massive. Taras seemed immersed in his thoughts. Recommend! Although, of course, you decide...

It is dedicated to the Ukrainian poet and painter who in the 19th century, promoted the use of the Ukrainian language had hitherto considered a dialect of Russian language, becoming a national hero of Ukrainian culture. It resumed sitting with a book in one hand while the other hand is under her chin in a pensive attitude.

  • On 11 July 2007, the first official visit of the Ukrainian president, Viktor Yushchenko, inaugurated the statue of Taras Shevchenko in Hungary. According to the words of the President of Hungary, László Sólyom: "As to Hungarians, the Ukrainian people, Shevchenko, both expressed freedom and democratic aspirations as the symbol of the nation." (Source: Public map) Taras Shevchenko also died at a relatively young age of only 47. The sculptor Ivan Mykytyuk depicts a big-bayed, jacket-pondering poet in his right hand with a book. A definite piece of art.
