"Together with the delegation of the Kyiv City Hall, we opened another monument to Anna Yaroslavna in Toulouse. Now, this monument adorns one of the historic sites of the city, Saint-Pierre Square," the diplomat wrote.
Kyiv presented the bronze sculpture of Kyiv princess to Toulouse as a sign of sister-city ties that united the cities since 1970.
The second monument to Anna Yaroslavna (Anne of Kyiv) was opened in Sanlis in 2005.
Anna Yaroslavna is known for her marriage with the French king Henry I in 1051 when she became the Queen of France. As a dowry, she brought the Reims Gospel, on which the kings of France sworn allegiance to the country.
As it was reported earlier, the monument to the hero of Kievan Rus Ilya Muromets was opened on August 2 in the park Murometsk on Trukhaniv Island in Kyiv.
The monument was made by young talented sculptor Volodymyr Zhurave. Vasyl Virastyuk was a model for Ilya Muromets. The parts for the forms of the sculpture, later poured with the bronze, were made with the help of the 3-D printer.
The height of the monument is 11 meters together with the granite hill and base.
