Take a look at the monument to Archangel St.Michael that was brought to Donetsk from Kiev.
Archangel St.Michael is the patron saint of the Ukrainian Capital.
It stands in Artyom Street, the main street of Donetsk, as a symbol of the Ukrainian Renaissance.
The statue stands in front of an Orthodox Cathedral built recently in the main street.
Our cab driver explained to us during our city tour that the cathedral was given a lucky space in the main street. That space had been banned from any construction site for years.
The thing is the public garden located there was built at the place of a former Nazi cemetery. Several years ago the City Council adopted a resolution the beginning of the construction of a new cathedral, thus destroying all the graves of the Nazis who fell in 1943 when the city was liberated from the invaders by the Soviet Army.
Address: Artyom Street
