Luhansk Off The Beaten Path: 47 reviews and 229 photos
These ancient sculptures of women stand in the park of Shevchenko National University.
They are called Scythian Women.
They stand as symbols of the remote past there.
Those nomadic tribes - Scythians - used to inhabit the vast areas of the present Luhansk region and then disappeared suddenly. They were ousted by other, more militan, tribes.
These sculptures are among the few relics we have inherited from them.
People - mainly young students and their instructors - come here just to stand and stare and, of course, to take pictures...
