Mosaic at Ukrtelekom building, Rubizhne, Ukraine - Rubizhne

Mosaic at Ukrtelekom building, Rubizhne, Ukraine

City Mosaic

I have always enjoyed viewing the city mosaics.
This is one of them: at the building of the Ukrtelekom in Liberators Street.
Isn’t it marvelous?
Take a look at the close up of that mosaic that I remember from the Soviet era.
I would call it like this: Peace and Harmony and what about you?

Address: Liberators Street

Directions: to the right from the bus station after the crossing.

Lenin monument in Chemists - Rubizhne

Lenin monument in Chemists

Check Out the White Giant

There is a huge Lenin monument at the chemical factory entrance in Chemists' Square.
Comrade Lenin stands proudly at the central factory entrance as if reminding all the employees whom they all should be grateful to. :-)
The White Giant, as I called it once, must be the biggest and the most impressive Lenin monument in Rubizhne.
Also, it is one of the biggest Lenin monuments in Luhansk region.
It is located at the entrance to what is now a chemical corporation.

Lenin monument, Rubizhne, Ukraine - Rubizhne

Lenin monument, Rubizhne, Ukraine

Lenin Monument

This is the place that I used to pass on my way to the library or when shopping.
It is in Lenin Park.
Lenin Park is in the middle of Lenin Street opposite School #6 and Galaxy store and School No.6.
This Lenin monument has no twins in other towns and cities, but has a unique design.
[The monument was demolished in 2015 by the decision of the Ukrainian government, like everywhere else in the country].
Lenin is depicted with what would be a leather case that he is holding in his left hand. He must be entering a conference room as a great orator ready to fight any contrary opinions or persons...
There are always flowers at the foot of the monument, which represents the residents’ longing for the Soviet era with all its reliability and visible order (and terrible invisible disorder, too)…
I must say that during my last stay in Rubizhne I saw funeral wreaths at the foot of this monument, which looked very rigid, as it were. Usually such funeral wreaths are only present at the cemetery... Their presence at the foot of the monument testifies to the fact that people are in deep mourning to a very close person or a relative...
This bronze monument, although hollow inside, looks very special and not "factory stamped" or "cut and dried" like dozens of others that still stand proudly in different towns and cities I have visited...

Address: Lenin Street

Directions: Lenin Park opposite School #6

Autumn Scherzo amateur  applied arts exhibition - Rubizhne

Autumn Scherzo amateur applied arts exhibition

Pay a Visit to the Museum

Visiting the local museum, you can view different applied arts exhibitions.
I viewed the Autumn Scherzo arrts exhibition on the second floor.
It represents several amateur artists of Rubizhne - ladies whose hobby is embroidering. They perfect themselves in creating embroidery masterpieces: cross-stitched canvases - replicas of famous Russian artists' paintings or individual projects of the local amateur artists. Their canvases are full of shades and produce an impression of real painted pictures.

You can take a look at my travelogue about the museum

Victory Hall at the city museum, Rubizhne - Rubizhne

Victory Hall at the city museum, Rubizhne

Memory of the Past War

The local museum occupies the old building of the former kindergarten (I am sorry they had to give up the kids' building) in Kirov Street located opposite the common grave of the Soviet soldiers who fell in the battles for liberation of Rubizhne in 1943.
The museum presents a Victory exhibition in the war hall. The exhibition has a lot of authentic exhibits, photographs, letters dating back to 1941-1945 along with some furniture pieces of that time.
A lot of school students are taken for a field tour to the museum and are shown this exhibition whose motto is the same good Soviet war motto, Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten!
As for me, I enjoyed viewing the embroidery masterpieces and the ethnographic hall at the museum.

Victory Day mosaic, Ruibizhne - Rubizhne

Victory Day mosaic, Ruibizhne

More Mosaic

This mosaic is called Victory Day (by me). :-)
The Victory Day mosaic adorns the back wall of the building of the former Komsomolets movie theater and represents the celebration and the joy of Victory Day.
It’s pleasant to sit on a bench in the adjoining park and to admire that unusual mosaic on the back wall of the movie theater.
It is really unique, like nothing else I have seen in the towns and cities of Luhansk region and outside it.
You can merely stand in front of this mosaic, look at it and ponder about its meaning.

Address: Kirov Avenue

Directions: City Park in Kirov Avenue, next to Cossacks' Council restaurant

The Central Park, Rubizhne, Ukraine - Rubizhne

The Central Park, Rubizhne, Ukraine

Stroll in the Central Park

The Central Park is located behind the former movie theater (Mendeleyev Street) around the war memorial in Labor Square.
There are several benches where people, mostly the tenants of the nearby apartment houses, like to sit.
The kids enjoy playing at the playground located here in the park.
You can also sit at a bench opposite the Victory Mosaic and contemplate observing that unique mosaic.

Address: Kirov Avenue

Directions: Labor Square - walk towards Mendeleyev Street

The war memorial in Kirov Street, Rubizhne - Rubizhne

The war memorial in Kirov Street, Rubizhne

Eternal Flame

This is where you could see the Eternal Flame in the city.
There is no flame here any more since the authorities have started to value gas like never before.
The Eternal Flame is located in Kirov Street at the mass grave of the soldiers and officers who fell in the battle for liberation of the city in January 1943.
The bronze figure of the mourning officer with a burial wreath in his hand is a symbol of people’s mourning and a reminder of the tragedy of the last world war.
The mass grave is in front of this monument.
There are memorial plaques with the names of the fallen soldiers and officers.
The inscription on the black memorial plaque at the monument reads,
.........................................................................................................................................
Eternal glory to those who perished in the battles for the liberation of Rubizhne
.........................................................................................................................................

Downtown war memorial, Rubizhne - Rubizhne

Downtown war memorial, Rubizhne

A Downtown War Memorial

These are pictures of the central war memorial located in Labor Square in the park behind the former Komsomolets movie theater.
The war memorial can be very well seen from Bohdan Khmelnitsky Street and Kirov Street when you leave the city park and approach Khmelnitsky Street.
The war memorial in Labor Square is dedicated to those soldiers and officers who did not come back from the fronts of the last world war.
Also, you can see a memorial plaque to the Heroes of the Soviet Union at the foot of the obelisk.
There are plaques with the names of all city residents who fell at the fronts of the last world war.
The white bas relief at the foot of the obelisk symbolizes the unity of three generations of the Motherland defenders: sons, fathers and grandfathers.
The inscription below the bas relief reads,
/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
To the residents of Rubizhne
who fell in the battles
for the liberation and independence
of their Motherland in 1941-1945

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
Seven city residents were awarded with the honorary title of the Hero of the Soviet Union:
Nickolay Boyko, senior lieutenant;
Vassily Danko, senior sergeant;
Fyodor Dachko, senior lieutenant;
Vadim Doichev, senior lieutenant;
Mikhail Mikhailichenko, colonel;
Nickolay Rudenko, senior batallion commissar;
Stepan Shvets, major.
All of these heroic officers had also the rank of „Guards“ preceding their army rank, which sounded like "Guards senior lieutenant".
You can see memorial plaque all around the foot of the war memorial. The plaque contain the names of the city residents who fll in battles for the liberation of their Motherland during the Grat Patriotic War of 1941-1945.
I must say the star on the top of the obelisk looks very extraordinary and awkward. Unlike all other ordinary five-point stars this one seems to stand on its two points as though they were legs and the distance between those lower points is much shorter than usual.

Directions: Between Labor Square and Mendeleyev Street
