  • 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.

  • Why do I consider this statue beautiful? Primarily because it is not a modernist and not a simple-to-do-it-mouthful approach (nowadays it is a very fashionable-idealized) perception. I often go out before, in different seasons, at a wide variety of times and weather conditions. He's in the snow, in a cold rain, or in a shucking heat in the mud. He is not batting the birds and the always-rushing people. Last time I found out about it, of course myself:-Hard kid, stick everything! In this room you can really feel the poised poet. ... And also the artist who had worked hard for him/her to make his sculpture. I like it and you're done. ... In addition, without interest-and that's why it's nice!
