Monument to Lesja Ukrainka - 1966, Luck

Monument to Lesja Ukrainka in Lesja Ukrainka's park (Luck).
1966, sculptor L.Muravin.

Find this monument is quite easy. The starting point is the main building of the Volyn University on Freedom Avenue (in front of which is a monument to Taras Shevchenko). From this monument one should cross Freedom Avenue, go down the stairs and then go to the main avenue of the Lesja Ukrainka's park until the left side you see this monument.

The monument contains a contradiction: Lesja Ukrainka's sculpture represents a young girl, about the age when she lived in Lutsk; and the inscription (quoted from "Forest Song") refers to the last period of her life.
