Basic Information about Kharkov, Ukraine

Kharkov 1653 is considered the year the city Kharkov was founded.

What is the origin of the city's name? There is a legend about it. Long ago, there was a farmstead of a rich peasant in this place. His name was Khariton, but people called him Kharko, and the place where he lived was called Kharkov's farmstead. After that the whole place was named Kharkov. But, most probably, the city received its name after the river which is flowing through Kharkov. Its name is Kharkov, too.

The other river which is flowing through Kharkov is the Lopan'. A settlement was organized in the place where both rivers meet. The first settlers were Ukrainain peasants and Cossacks. This place was well protected. From three sides there were swampy banks and from the fourth side it was surrounded by a vast forest.
