The Monument to Liberators as seen from Soborna Sq
The monument was erected in 1946 in the public garden in today's Soborna Sq, in place of the unfinished Romanian monument to the unknown soldier. Sculpted by H.L. Petrashevych and designed by V.I. Hryhor, the granite obelisk with a bronze sculpture of a soldier was commemorated to March 29, 1944, the day Chernivtsi was finally liberated from Nazi invaders. After some time the structure became a local symbol of victory in the World War II.
In 1973 the facade was supplemented with plaques naming the army units that liberated Bukovyna.
