Walking along the city streets you feel that this Soviet slogan lives on.
Kovel was a center of large scale fighting during the Second World War.
In July 1944 there were fierce battles for the liberation of Kovel from the German invaders. You can see the map of those battles at the waiting hall of the city railway station.
Nine most active military units were awarded with an honorary title.
They got the right to use the city name in their military unit name.
For example, the 175th infantry division that liberated the city from the Germasn invaders became a Kovel division.
The inscription on the wall of the waiting room of the railway station represents the scheme of the battle for the liberation of Kovel and reads,Glory to you, immortal heroes!
The people sing you eternal glory!
You lived gallantly and defeated death,
The memory of you shall never die!
They fell in the battles for life,
Their immortality shall be eternity,
Their feat is in our hearts!
Bow to them, people!
