Chernobyl memorial, Rubizhne
Like in many other towns and cities of Ukraine, there is a Chernobyl memorial in Rubizhne.
It commemorates the victims of the 1986 nuclear plant catastrophe - both residents and those who took part in liquidation of the consequences of the disaster. Those "liquidators", as they are called here, were sent to Chenobyl area from all over Ukraine.
The memorial is in the park lane in 30 Years of Victory Street, on your way from the city council to the cathedral.
The inscription on the black plaque reads,
To the victims of Chernobyl catastrophe -
to the fallen, to the living and to the non-born.
Autumn Scherzo amateur applied arts exhibition
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
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.

Lenin monument, Rubizhne, Ukraine
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.
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...

At Lake Pesochnoye
Ozero Pesochnoye (in Russian) - Sandy Lake - is located on the city outskirts not far from where Kharkiv Street ends.
This lake has long been the favorite bathing destination for lots of city residents.
It is included into the list of ecologically safe lakes of Luhansk region.
Although I must say the beach sand is not pure at all. There are always cigarette butts there, but don't let that deter you.
The beach has a volleyball net for beach volleyball, two beer tents where you can combine beer drinking and people watching and a water bike hiring station.
People never call the lake itself by its official name. They use the informal name and say simply Vodnaya, which means Water Station.
The only problem is that there are no direct buses to this place. You always have to hire a cab ($3) from downtown and back.

The cathedral was built with white bricks manufactured by the local brick factory, which makes it different from many other new churches built with yellow bricks.

The cathedral has a big courtyard and to the right of the entrance there is the building of the former temporary church of the city.

Mosaic at Ukrtelekom building, Rubizhne, Ukraine
I have always liked 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.
At the central market, Rubizhne
If you happen to be here on a weekend, do not miss this chance.
Go shopping, window shopping and people watching to the central market in Liberators Street.
Nowhere else can you feel the atmosphere of Rubizhne and see more people than here.
This is where I tend to encounter my old friends and acquaintances.
You have to be there at about 7 a.m. on Saturday to feel the rhythm of life in Rubizhne!
Have a good time!
