Description

A modern photograph to St. Yuriy (Georgiy) Zmiyeborets (Dragon Fighter), put up in Grygorenka square (former Smolka square) in 1999 (sculptors A. and V. Sukhorski). The monument is situated in front of the modern building of Ministry of Internal Affairs and is the homage to all who perished in the struggle with crime. Till 1946 in this place a monument to Franciszek Smolka, a famous Polish politician, who lived in one of the buildings in this square (#4) was situated. The photo of the monument was taken from the back, so that the perspective of Grygorenko square to the direction of the central part of the city is well seen.
