The museum is located in the central square, round the corner from School 1.
Its full name is Perevalsk County Historical Museum.
I was in Perevalsk on Saturday and the museum was closed.
Next time I will pay a visit there by all means.
You can see ancient carved stone figures to the right of the entrance to the museum.
Such female figures were found in our steppes.
They are the legacy of the nomadic tribes that used to inhabit our region in the 5th century B.C.
There are some new monuments in the town, among them Chernobyl Memorial.
It looks very modest, but is very impressive too.
The momnument is located in the central square next to the white administrative building.
It is also next to the ancient steppe figures that stand near the county local lore museum.
Picture 3 depicts the round marble image in the Chernobyl memorial. It is called Savior of Chernobyl.
The inscription under the round image of Savior of Chernobyl reads, We bend our heads low before those
who went into the nuclear fire of Chernobyl
in order to stop the chain reaction of death.
The leisure center is called Miner.
This Stalin era building is located in the main square.
You can see a movie or a concert here.
In the evenings there are discos here, too.
This cafe is located near the central square.
Its name would sound as Meeting in English.
It's the central and the most popular cafe in Perevalsk.
There is another good destination for lunch and dinner:
restaurant in the town of Artiomovsk.
Tel. 050 967 21 98;
050 293 57 46.
Buses to Luhansk depart every twenty minutes from the central square.
The last bus departs at about 8 p.m.
The bus fare is 11 UAH.
The town and the district have their own symbols, like many other towns and cities of Luhansk region.
Not only coat-of-arms and a flag, but also old architectural landmarks belong to those symbols.
Here are some pictures:
Old coalminers' club in Perevalsk;
The town's stadium,
The old entrance to the city park.
The city park was called after Vatslav Vorovsky, a Soviet public figure who was murdered in Losanna, Switzerland.
This Bolshevik leader has his own story to tell us.
This is what I have found out about him. When I was young, I did not realize what and who our parks and squares are named after.
Thank God we have a wide access to information now!
This is a short Vorovsky story:Vatslav Vorovsky (in Polish: Wacław Worowskij), Bolshevik party name Josephine and his two comrades came to Lausanne, Switzerland, to take part at the Middle East conference, although the Soviet delegation had not been invited.
They arrived to Lausanne in the morning of May 10, 1023 and in the evening of the same day during their dinner at the restaurant of Hotel Cecil a 26-year-old citizen of Switzerland Maurice Alexander Conradi (1896-1946), a Russian emigré of Swiss descent, a member of then Swiss Fascist League, shot Vorovsky on the back of his head and wounded his two comrades. Maurice Conradi had suffered under the Soviet regime in Russia. The courts acquitted Conradi on November 16 in view of Vorovsky’s participation in Bolshevik crimes against humanity.
The incident brought Switzerland and Russia to a state of extreme tension.
More about that murder
You can observe weddings especially on Saturdays, if you happen to be in the central square where the newly-weds traditionally appear at the entrance to the administrative building and are greeted by their guests before they all leave to lay flowers to the foot of the monument.
It's a big tradition with us. Taking pictures of the couples is a part of the tradition, too.
When I was taking pictures of the couple, I didn't ask their permission, just got mixed with the line of photographers...
The newly-weds take a ride about the city before coming to their holiday table at the restaurant where all the guests are waiting for them.
Weddings are widely celebrated in the city.
You will be glad to see hired wedding cars with huge wedding rings on top or without them.
They are having a ride about the city on Saturday morning before the official wedding lunch begins.
It is always exciting to see the newly-weds.
Let us wish them peace and harmony!

Perevalsk County is a part of Luhansk region.
The county was formed on January 4, 1965.
The county consists of 39 destinations:

I liked the town symbols of the town of Artiomovsk.
