Chapel of St. Nicholas

Baturyn Ukraine

Ukrainian Orthodox

The chapel was built in 2011 in honor of the 150th anniversary of the reburial of Taras Shevchenko from St. Petersburg to Kaniv (1861). Shevchenko was a noted poet who had wished to be buried in Ukraine. With Ukraine's independence in 1991, a requiem march took place with thousands taking part. The rally also took place in Baturyn and the memorial sign erected at that time.
