Taras Shevchenko was an Ukrainian poet, writer but also a political figure who got into trouble for writing in Ukrainian. The monument looks nice at night when it's light up. You can find it in the small park in front of the University.

This statue is nothing spectacular. It is located in the Shevchenko park which is nice. And it faces the university which is a very nice building.
