Ukrainian Monument, CURITIBA (PR)
Curitiba is the capital of the Southern Brazilian state of Paraná. The subtropical climate and arable land drew many European migrants to Curitiba. Many came from Portugal, Italy, Germany, and Spain, but also from Poland, Ukraine, Austria, and later from the Middle East. They settled down to do agricultural work, or set up their own businesses. Most migrants grouped together and kept the traditions and religions from their country of origin. Ukrainians built wooden Orthodox churches, and one of them was built as a replica in the center of Curitiba, to honor the Ukrainian migrants.
The original picture was taken in April 2008.
