It was founded in 1834 as the University of Saint Vladimir. The walls of the main building are painted in red while the tops and bottoms of its columns are painted black. These refer to the colours of Saint Vladimir’s Order. In 1939, Kiev University was re-named after Taras Shevchenko (a major figure in Ukrainian literature and painting).

      I really must admit it’s very pleasing to see a rather ‘different’ blog such as this one, excellent job. I look forward to coming back quite often and I look forward to reading your next post when I do.

      I have to make the comment that it is really quite refreshing to visit a somewhat ‘different’ blog such as this one, good effort. I expect I’ll be dropping by again soon. BTW I’ll be looking out for your next comment then.
