Historically, Bohdan Khmelnytsky, a Zaporozhian hetman whom led the Ukrainian uprising against the Polish Lithuanian kingdom in 1648. Located at Sophia Square, excellent views of St. Sophia's Cathedral and St. Michael's Golden-domed Monastery.

From one angle you ate shooting photos of St. Sophia, from another you are shooting at another lovely old church. The monument is very imposing and worth a stop

The monument is located on the large square in front of St Sophias Cathedral, you can't miss seeing it on your way, so stop and look at it.

This is a large bronze statue located in Sofiskaya square, outside the St Sophia museum enclosure. It's a nice enough statue, but without the context and history it's pretty similar to any other statue you may see.

The statue itself is nothing special in terms of historical figures and their memorials have a peek if you are in the vicinity.

Well it's a monumental statue on one of the central squares. But Chmielnicki, unknown as he is in the West, played a large role in the history of this region and is a controversial figure, so might be worth it reading up on him.

If I remember correctly, this guy was the last great leader (hetman) of the Cossacks. I've taken a million photos of the statue, with various coloured skies in the background. He is always photogenic
