One of best Universities in Ukraine according to the current rankings, the Taras Shevchenko University possesses the red building of impressive size. The building is a symbol of the University and the Ukrainian higher education system in general.
Length of the façade of this major and eldest 4-story campus building equals 145.68m. Russian architect Beretti constructed the building within couple of years after the University foundation. Father the founder was Nocholas I of Russia. He signed a Charter about University and named it after St.Volodymyr, Baptist of the Kievan Rus. Colors of the stripes on the Order of St.Volodymyr correspond to the color of the building – it is all red with black lines on tops and bottoms of the columns. It is also said that Nicholas II of Russia had ordered to paint the whole building red. It was Tsar’s answer to the students’ protests during WWI as reminder about Ukrainian soldiers’ blood shed on the battlegrounds.
The University has received its current name in 1939. The most famous Ukrainian poet and artist, Taras Shevchenko had been employed by the St.Volodymyr University in 1845-1846. But even if not, the greatness of Shevchenko’s figure in the Ukrainian literature is such that naming the best University after him is quite obvious.
First of all, let me apologize for being so long in writing to THANK YOU for the superb organization of our wonderful stay in the Ukraine back in August. We have nothing but praise for the professional yet very friendly way in which everybody treated us and keep fond memories of all the people who helped make our stay so special!
I'd like to wish you in particular a Merry Christmas and a very happy New
Year! It's a shame we met for such a short time, but your invisible hand
was looking after us all throughout the trip and was instrumental and making
you country an unforgettable experience for us!
I'd also be most grateful if you could pass the message on to Alex in Kiev
who took such good care of us and to his charming wife Victoria whom we've
had the pleasure of meeting at our request.
Merry Christmas and once again Thanks for everything!
