It’s hard to overestimate the contribution of T. Shevchenko to the development of the literature not only in Ukraine but in the whole world.

There are several museums of T. Shevchenko in various cities of Ukraine; however, the one in Kaniv is very special. One of the oldest Historical and Cultural Reserves of Ukraine is situated in a place where T. Shevchenko was buried according to his will. You will discover the burial place of the poet on a high Tarasova Hill, overlooking the wide Dnipro River.

Not far from it, there is a Memorial Museum of T. Shevchenko, built in 1937 and renovated in 2010. The collection of the museum counts with more than 20 thousands of unique exhibits and includes rare early editions of T. Shevchenko poetry, his memorabilia, photo and audio materials, the artist’s etching, etc.

Another must-visit place in Kaniv is a folk museum Tarasova Svitlytsya, built in 1884 on people’s money. The interior of the traditional Ukrainian hut is decorated with the portraits of T. Shevchenko, icons, wreaths and embroidered towels.
