Pam'yatnyk Hoholyu

Poltava, Ukraine
4.6 / 16
"Pam'yatnyk Hoholyu" is a beautiful monument dedicated to the world-famous writer, Mykola Gogol. It was created by the renowned sculptor Posen and stands on a poor pedestal that is in need of restoration. Despite this, the surrounding area is spacious, green, and clean, even on weekends. There are also interesting sculptures nearby that depict characters from Gogol's works. The monument itself is wonderful and leaves a lasting impression. While I am not a permanent resident of Poltava, I have lived here for a while and the city has become like home to me. I appreciate everything about it, except for the presence of obscenities. It is disheartening to see adults and children using foul language everywhere, as if it is the norm. This is something that needs to be addressed. In regards to the monuments in Poltava in general, each one has an original pedestal, which is quite impressive. However, in the case of "Pam'yatnyk Hoholyu," the podium and steps are a disgrace and reflect poorly on the local authorities. It is clear that they should be better maintained. The surrounding square features benches where visitors can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee. Overall, the monument to the outstanding Ukrainian writer, Mykola Gogol, is a beautiful place to visit, especially for those who are familiar with his works. It is heartening to see that efforts are being made to preserve this place. I highly recommend taking a theater tour to further appreciate the influence of Gogol's writings. The monument itself is both beautiful and simple, with a classic representation of Gogol inviting us to sit on a nearby city bench. I remember purchasing envelopes, calendars, postcards, and badges with the image of this monument from kiosks in Soyuzpechat. It was a source of pride to buy and send these items to friends. The location of the monument is easy to find, as it is right in the center, opposite the theater of the same name. I suggest taking a walk along the park to explore the other sculptures depicting characters from Gogol's works, such as "Evenings on a Farm," "Viy," and "Christmas Night." In conclusion, "Pam'yatnyk Hoholyu" is a great place to visit, and it is particularly enjoyable for children. The addition of the Alley of Gogol's Heroes behind the monument adds to its charm and significance.



A very beautiful monument to the world-famous writer of the famous sculptor Posen, but on a poor pedestal, which has long needed if not replacement, then at least restoration
Spacious, green, clean even on the weekend. Nearby are interesting sculptures to the works of Gogol
