The Only Monument In Ukraine Nov 15, 2017
Strolling along the city streets, you will be surprised to discover the monuments and sculptures you would never imagine to find. For example, you can find the monument to the famous American writer Ernest Hemingway. It is the only Hemingway monument in Ukraine. The bronze statue was unveiled on August 23, 2012 at the same time with opening of Old Hem Pub. This is the pub's homepage (in Russian): http://oldhem.com/

The writer is depicted in a rather relaxed attitude. He leans on a small fence, and one of his legs is wound up for another. The sculptors created a very accurate image of the writer’s vest, but, as critics say, the portrait resemblance leaves much to be desired. Nevertheless, the writer’s figure conveys the image of Ernest Hemingway very well. I would even say there is enough portrait resemblance in the statue, although I am not an art critic, of course.

This monument adorns a popular drinking establishment Old Hem Pub. The pub’s motto is, You'll never drink alone. The pub is an arts ground where poets and musicians meet over beer and perform for customers.

This arts pub is known for its good draft beer and beer snacks: Fried cheese suluguni; Potato croquettes; Fried onion rings; Shrimps with soy sauce; Crispy pig ears; Squid rings, cooked and filled with sour cream; Several kinds of beer plates.

You can reach this monument this way: exit University Subway Station, walk to Sumy Street and then go to Liberty Street, or: leave Derzhprom Subway Station, exit to Liberty Square, walk to Sumy Street, and then go to Liberty Steet.
