There are especially strategically important cities for the Ukrainian industry. One of these is Pavlograd. It is located in the heart of the coal basin in the Donbass. A large industrial zone is separated from residential areas and extends far from them in the northern direction – all enterprises and industries are concentrated there. Until the end of the 18th century, the settlement did not have the status of a city. But already in the 19th century, it developed into a large shopping center.
At that time, the region specialized in the production of grain and flour. The number of products was so large that it allowed exporting to other countries. Russia, Turkey and England willingly bought grain and flour from Pavlograd. It was during this economically favorable period that numerous factories and plants were built. The city’s favorable location at the intersection of roads allowed it to quickly and efficiently establish transport links with Kiev, Lugansk and Izvarino. Together with the nearest large cities (Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhye) Pavlograd is included in the group of the most important and strategically important cities for the country.
