The house of Tsybulskiy's brothers (now - the museum ,,Kobzar" of T. Shevchenko)

The house was built in 1852 for Cherkasy businessmen Tsybulskiy's brothers. Once it was the tallest building in the city.

The house was semi-wooden and had one and a half floors. This is where, according to local lore scientists, Taras Shevchenko was under police surveillance. In 1859 the poet went to the village Pekari in Kaniv district. In the village he had quarreled with some local man. Then Cherkasky policeman Tabachnykov wrote a report, which said that Shevchenko said bad things and said all sorts of not good things about the landlords. So, the poet was taken to the detention of Cherkasy, where he stayed from 18 to 22 July. However, he managed to avoid a stay in jail thanks to Tsybulskiy's brothers, who "agreed" with Tabachnykov, fairly paid to him.

There is a legend that Shevchenko left a small wooden glass, which he had taken with him everywhere, and then when leaving, left for memory. And it's a family memory it was kept at Tsybulskiy's brothers. They say that it is somewhere in the collections of museum.

In the 1890's the building was reconstructed into three-storeyed brick, and it is perfectly preserved until today. For a long time the house was rented by the bank, shops, a hairdresser. In the late 1980s the building was restored by brothers. Architecture of the building was made using classicism style.

The entire ground floor of the building is currently occupieby Ukraine's first and only museum in the world of one book - dedicated to the collection "Kobzar" by Shevchenko. Opened in May 1989 and contains many rare editions of this book. The museum shows the history of the publication of works of the poet, the source of his work, the most interesting publications.
