Description
The monument to the Ukrainian writer, poet and publicist Ivan Franko (1856-1916) was erected at the Lychakiv cemetery in 1933, 18 years after Franko's death. The monument was authored by the well-known Ukrainian sculptor Serhii Lytvynenko. The figure of the stonecutter is an image taken from the eponymous poem by Ivan Franko. Ever since the monument's erection and to this day, it has been the site of many patriotic meetings and rallies, as well as events commemorating Franko. The monument is a must-see for the many tourists who view the Lychakiv cemetery museum complex.
