Monument to Hetman B. Khmelnytsky to the work of the sculptor Kovalyov O.O. was established in September 1993 on the occasion of the 1000th anniversary of the founding of Nizhyn.
Zynoviy Bohdan Khmelnytsky was a Ukrainian Hetman of the Zaporozhian Host of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth (now part of Ukraine). He led an uprising against the Commonwealth and its magnates (1648–1654) that resulted in the creation of a state led by the Cossacks of Ukraine.
