Monument to the Swedes from the Swedes

Poltava, Ukraine
4.7 / 15
The "Monument to the Swedes from the Swedes" is a place of historical significance that is worth visiting to learn about and remember the past. It is a powerful reminder of the chains that once existed, and it is heartening to see history reconcile its heroes through monuments like this. However, it is unfortunate that the monument has been neglected and requires restoration. Vandals have stolen the metal fence, and the overall condition of the place is relatively desolate. It seems that even representatives from Sweden have not visited in a long time. Despite this, the monument is still beautiful, and the flowering alley leading up to it is a pleasant sight, especially in June. It is a unique and interesting place, albeit in need of attention. The monument itself has stood solidly for over a hundred years, honoring the Swedes who fought alongside Ukrainians in the Battle of Poltava. While the battle did not free Ukraine from the influence of their northern neighbor, it is an important moment in history that is perpetuated by this monument.



It is worth visiting this place of power at least once in order to remember and know the history.
