Monument to the founders of Kiev
According to the “Primary Chronicle” by Nestor the Chronicler, as well as other Russian chronicles, dated XI-XII centuries, the contemporary city of Kiev was founded by three brothers – Kyi, Schek, Khoryv and their sister Lybid. The newly formed three small settlements subsequently merged into a magnificent city, named after the eldest brother Kyi.
The sculptural composition of the monument on the Embankment of the Dnieper consists of the rook, on which float brothers Kyi, Schek, Khoryv, and their beautiful sister Lybid. At the foot of the monument there is a pool, and the monument is made of granite.
