The monument to Prince Yaroslav the Wise Nov 15, 2017
Prince Yaroslav the Wise Square is located in the central part of Kharkiv, at the intersection of Pushkin Street and Petrovsky Street. The square was named in honor of Prince Yaroslav of Novgorod and Kiev, the eldest son of Prince St.Vladimir the Baptist of Kiev Rus. Prince Yaroslav is known all over the world as Prince Yaroslav the Wise. Here, near the building of Yaroslav the Wise National Law Academy, you can see the monument to Prince Yaroslav the Wise, which was inaugurated on October 8, 1999. Its location is symbolic, because the Academy is named after the Prince, who went down into the history as the author of the first book of laws in Kiev Rus. Prince Yaroslav (977-1054), who reigned in 1019-1054, is depicted in a majestic pose, sitting on a throne and holding a book in his hands. The book is called “Yaroslav’s Truth”, or "The Rus Truth".

There are inscriptions in Ukrainian on two sides of the pedestal that is made of grey-and-green granite. The Ukrainian inscription on the left side of the pedestal reads, "To the first law-maker of Kiev Rus".

The inscription on the right side of the pedestal is a quote from The Rus Truth. It reads, "Live according to this scripture, as I wrote for you, keep on this way".

The total height of the monument is 4.8 meters.
