Nice monument for a great man. Everyone should see polish movie "With fire and sword" where he is one of the central figures.

The cossack leader Chmelnitsky may still be a kind of national symbol of Cossack indipendence, but was a fierce anti-semite. No need to leave flowers (and nobody does, actually).

Nice monument in the main Sophia cathedral square - you can't miss it as it is between that church and St. Michael's Church on the other side. Nice walk to have in the spring or summer time.

Somewhere you find when you are not really looking - well that is how I found it. The statue itself is really great to look at but the actual square itself is the selling point as far as I am concerned - great architecture and really interesting buildings and some shops. Look out for they dressed as a bear -... More
