The monument to Bohdan Khmelnitsky was established and opened in 1993 opposite the Philharmonic Hall - next to the State Administration of Khmelnitsky region - after the liberation war in 1648-1657 which was started by Hetman.

The sculpture depicts a galloping Hetman with a characteristically raised hand holding a mace. Abnormal posture and horse figures disproportion caused heated discussion around the monument by city community, but it was installed.
