About Kazakhstan / Towns / Fort-Shevchenko

Former Fort-Alexander settlement founded in 1857 possesses historical and cultural interest and it was the beginning of the modern town of Fort-Shevchenko. The modern town is related to the name of the Ukrainian kobza-player T.Shevchenko who had spent long years of exile in this area. In 1932 the memorial museum of T.Shevchenko was opened near the earth-house where he had been hiding from the informers and policemen, where he had been writing and painting. Even now there is a violet willow that he had planted in 1850 in the park, which had been established with his participation and which is now a reserve.
