    Explore the War Memorial

    by hunterV Updated Sep 6, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This village war memorial is very special with its sculptures.
    I was very impressed with the scultures at the sides of the war memorial.
    The one on the picture symbolizes numerous civilian victims of the war.
    The memorial is dedicated to the soldiers who fell in the battle for the liberation of Varvarivka in 1943.
    There are numerous plaques with the names of the fallen soldiers.
    The inscriptions next to the memorial plaques read,You were born for eternity,
    You will never be forgotten
    Since your Motherland has been saved.
    The war inscribed
    On tragic tombstones
    Names, names, names…If the time is still a river
    Whose banks do not hinder its current,
    Its water is transparent and clear,
    The names disappear in the river
    When the term comes
    And the river covers everything
    With itself.

    Enjoy the Countryside

    The pine-tree forest begins right on the outskirts of the village.
    You can walk to the right of the village club along Tsabiyev Street and see the opposite hill located across the valley. The valley is in the area of the small stream.
    I have always enjoyed those magnificent views on the way to our friends in Eastern Street.

    Forest is around the valley! Varvarivka, Ukraine Geese are numerous here. Village views Village views Village views

    Greet the Monks

    by hunterV Updated Jul 19, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While in the village center you can also go to the monastery that was under reconstruction for several years and looks very modified now.
    There are several monks there now.
    You will recognize the building of Prophet St.Elijah Cathedral where the monastery is located.
    The monks have accomplished a lot of work here.
    The cathedral itself dates back to 1680 when the village was founded.
    The cathedral dean is Father Hermann and another priest is Father Joasaph.
    You can see a lot of huge icons inside the cathedral, among them some unique and old ones.
    I enjoyed viewing the martyrs icons of the Romanovs there (see the travelogue).

    Introduce Yourself

    Why not visit the local school and be a guest speaker there.
    I am sure both the teachers and the school students would appreciate and remember it.
    The school is right next to the cathedral.
    Don't forget to bring some postcards and posters for school students with you.
