Title:
Monuments on Svobody avenue
City:
Description:
In the early December of 1939 a monument to Stalin’s Friendship of Nations was placed on Hetmanski Valy (Hetman’s ramparts) street, on the axis of the main walking alley, not far from the well with the Mother of God statue. It was a figure composition decorated with red flags and the emblems of the Soviet republics. A 20-meter-high obelisk was added to this sculptural composition in the early 1940. On the opinion of Yuriy Biriuliov, an art critic and expert in Lviv sculpture, here again, as it was in the case of the monument to Stalin’s Constitution, the authors of the idea were sculptor Serhiy Lytvynenko and Mykhailo Dmytrenko, an artist from Kyiv; the idea was realized by sculptors Yevhen Dzyndra and Andriy Koverko.

The Prospect Svobody Promenade – formerly, the Hetman Ramparts – was laid in on top of the western section of the historic defensive fortifications that ringed Lviv. The walls were pulled down sometime around 1776 and put into public service of the city. In the first half of the 19th century, parallel streets were established on the eastern and western banks of the Poltva River, and landscaped in rows of poplar; the streets would one day become the boulevard that is Prospect Svobody. In the late 1880s, arched bridges spanned the gap between Maryatska Square (currently, Mickiewicz Square) and Golukhovska Square (currently, Torhova Square). Between 1888-1890, under the direction of Arnold Röhring, the area enclosing the underground river channel was planted in trees and flowerbeds.

The grand opening of the monument to the King of Poland took place on November 20, 1898. The monument was made by the famous Lviv sculptor Tadeusz Baroncz. After World War II, in 1950, the monument was moved to Poland where for almost twenty years it was located in Wilanowski Park in Warsaw while discussion continued about its appropriate location. In 1987 the monument to Jan III Sobieski was ceremonially unveiled on Wooden Market in Gdansk.
