SYDIR VOROBKEVYCH

The portrait sculpture of Sydir Vorobkevych in Kotsiubynsky St, in front of the former Residence of Bukovynian Metropolitans

Sydir Vorobkevych born 1836 in Chernivtsi was and has been remaining an outstanding personality in the establishing and promoting of the Ukrainian language. Amongst his other poems and prose, he wrote the text of the Native Language (Ridna Mova) song, which is now the anthem to every Ukrainian linguistics student.

 

A plaster copy of the sculptured portrait was installed yet in 1991, and on the City Day (October 6) in 2006, under auspices of Chernivtsi politicians and public figures, that was replaced with the original copper work sculptured by Mykola Lysakivsky.
