Poltava and places of interest






Poltava was first mentioned in the annals of Ipatiev (1173) under the

name Ltava. This town has a great history that discovers a thorny way it

went along to become so wonderful. Numerous wars (the Great liberation

war, the Second World War) posed a grave obstacle to the further

development of the town turning it sometimes into a field of ruins,

however the town restored its beauty on a regular basis. The historic

document of the year 1641 claimed that Poltava became an urban center.

The spotlight of the history of this town is HYPERLINK

"" a glorious battle

between the troops of Peter I (the Russian tsar) and those of the

Swedish king Charles XII and his Ukrainian ally, hetman Mazepa that took

place 290 years ago. Over 4000 Poltavites joined the army of Peter I to

fight against the Swedish. The grand event ended in the victory of

Russians. That battle defined the historic evolution of Ukraine.

Subsequently, Poltava began to thrive. The architectural art was being

implemented in magnificent edifices. Thus, Poltava got the honor of

being called "little Petersburgh". Yet, during the Great Patriotic War

opportunities to cultural and spiritual enrichment owing to a range of

museums, theatres, cinemas. The museums of Poltava are welcoming those

who are eager to unfold the pages of the town's glorious past. The most

remarkable of them are the Museum of Local lore (designed in baroque

style), the Art Museum, the Poltava Battle Museum, the Art Gallery, the

Kotlyarevsky museum-homestead, the Korolenko memorial museum, the Panas

Myrny literary museum etc.


People can spend their spare time in a reasonable way by attending such

theatres and cinemas as the Gogol theatre, the Kotlyarevsky cinema, the

cinema "Kolos", the Philharmonic House. Quite recently (2 years ago)

there appeared the Palace of Leisure and Culture "Lystopad" where the

renowned Ukrainian, Russian and even foreign singers give their

concerts. There are also plenty of entertainment places - cafes, disco

bars, restaurants, night clubs, sport complexes etc. Speaking about

amusement sites we can't help mentioning the underground town "Zlato

misto". It is a posh entertainment and trading complex that includes a

few shops, a luncheonette, a disco bar "Eneida". Zlato misto can be

recognized from the outside by the two large glass domes. One of them is
