In memory of the heroes of Chernobyl in 1988 – on the occasion of the first day of the city – a stone sign was installed with the inscription “Low bow and eternal memory.” Later, a memorial sign was unveiled, at the foot of which flowers are constantly laid. The authors of the project were A. Gotalsky, L. Aptukova and V. Belyk.
The composition consists of a pylon with a bell and two plates on which were placed 30 photos of Chernobyl workers and firefighters who in the first hours of the accident received a critical dose of radiation.
30 rose bushes called “Slavutych” have been planted near the monument. This completely new variety was created for the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy by the French company Meilland.
