19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Benches of open pages

Reading educates a person and fills life with new sensations. In the Ukrainian city of Odessa, there is a square with a series of benches in the form of open pages of books of the Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko, who was a patriot, but lived most of his life outside of Ukraine. His work is studied at schools. On the benches you can read excerpts from his poems.
