Ivan Mazepa Monument

Chernihiv, Ukraine
4.9 / 7
The Ivan Mazepa Monument is a bronze bust of the prominent Ukrainian hetman, Ivan Stepanovich Mazepa. It is mounted on a white marble column and located near the Chernigov Collegium. The monument was erected in 2009 and features Mazepa's coat of arms attached to the column. The bust itself is rather dark in appearance. Opinions about the monument are mixed, with some finding the location beautiful but not particularly liking the bust. The monument was opened on August 21, 2009, just days before the official opening ceremony on Ukraine's Independence Day. Despite the solemnity of the occasion, the monument has faced vandalism attempts in the past. The sculptor of the monument is G. A. Ershov, and the architect is V. V. Pavlenko. It is considered one of the youngest sights in Chernihiv. While the execution of the monument is successful, there are some who believe it could have been placed in a different location, away from the monuments of the Kievan Rus era.
Address:Preobrazhens'ka Street, 6, Chernihiv
