About the place

On March 6, 1939 in commemoration of the 125th birth anniversary of the Kobzar, as Taras Shevchenko is also called, in the public garden opposite the Uni­versity, the monument to Taras Shevchenko (sculptor M.Ma­­ni­­zer, architect Ye.Levinson) was unveiled — right on the spot where previously was the monument to Czar Nicholas I.

On the pedestal of the monument are the carved lines from the poet's My Testament [translation by John Weir, a Ukrainian Canadian]:
And in the great new family,
The family of the free,
With softly spoken,
kindly word
Remember also me.
This testament has been piously implemented by the Ukrainian nation. Bearing the name of Shevchenko in Kyiv are the University, the Opera House, a school, a library, a district and one of the most ­beautiful streets of the city — Shev­chenko Boulevard.
