Watch the past

Category: Information

Mondays are usually the hardest days of a week. But 20 October , 2014 was different from the others, because it was filled with delightful memories. Imagine yourself walking along the streets of Kirovohrad, but a century ago. Imagine the noises, circling around and the colours, flashing in front of you.

Dr Yurii Mytrofanenko, the ESU guest speaker, created a virtual excursion around the city of Kirovohrad for the ESU audience. Listening to our guide’s  presentation we walked virtually from the Kropyvnytskyi Theatre to Velyka Perspectyvna Street, where the first trams made their way in 1897, from Pushkinskyi College to  City Square, that looks so different nowadays without its cityhall, from Mykolaivskyi bridge to Greek church, where V.Vynnychenko was baptized.  During the trip we tried to recognize the familiar places that had greatly changed. It was so exciting to realize how much the city had developed through centuries.

Moreover, we had an opportunity to see the pictures of the buildings, that were ruined  long time ago. We were amazed  with the impressive architecture of Roman Catholic Church and Elysavethrad Cathedral.

It was a fantastic lecture, that inspired and made a meaningful impact on the audience. The speaker’s profound knowledge on the subject and his excellent sense of humor  influenced greatly the way we perceived the information. Images and individuals flashing on the pictures and in our minds made the past real and  close.

That was a bewitching Monday: without using a magic wand Dr Mytrofanenko  made us fascinated!
