St. Nepomuk Monument
City:
Description:

A figure of St. Jan Nepomuk used to be situated on a bridge near hotel “De Russie” – “Russian” (1796). In the 1830ies it was moved to the end of Sviatoho Jana street (Shevchenko avenue, crossroads of Fredra, Gertsena and Saksaganskoho streets) and put on the bridge across Poltva, which was then flowing in the middle of the street. In 1890 Poltva was finally hidden under the ground, and the statue of St. Jan was dismantled and moved to St. Mykolaya church; the further fate of this monument is unknown.
On the right a sign with the inscription “Frischgebäck” can be seen – probably bread could be bought in this building.
