Kherson on the map

Kherson is one of the largest sea and river ports in Ukraine. The city is located on the right bank of the Dnieper, 25 kilometers from the confluence of the Dnieper estuary of the Black Sea.

The Kherson seaport, founded in 1778, is located here. At the end of the 19th century, the shipping channel was deepened and the port was opened for large traffic. The river is in interaction with the seaport. It is located on the right bank of the Koshevaya River. This port is the only estuary river port of the Dnieper with year-round navigation.

In the southern part of Kherson, the deep Dnieper formed many lakes. Several tributaries of the Dnieper go around the southern part of the city. Vineyards and orchards grow in the southwest and northeast. The northwestern outskirts are an industrial zone, separated from residential areas by Novonikolaevskoye highway. The automobile bridge, which is part of the Ostrovskoe highway, connects the left and right banks of the Dnieper.

Ternopil on the map

In the western part of Ukraine, occupying a fairly large part of the area, the city of Ternopil is spread out. It is one of the largest settlements located on the banks of the Seret River. Its founder is Jan Amor Tarnowski, who in the 16th century began the construction of a small settlement on this place. The territory of the urban district includes several rather large, as well as many small rivers and reservoirs. Some time ago, not far from the southern border of the city, another river flowed – Rudka, but today it has completely dried up.

Ternopil is rightfully called one of the most beautiful cities in Ukraine. It is for this reason that the entire industrial zone, including factories and enterprises, was moved to its northern outskirts. This ensured that residential areas were protected from pollution by exhaust and industrial waste. For the convenience and efficiency of the enterprises, branches of railway lines were brought to them. On the territory of Ternopil itself there are several large, comfortable and well-groomed park areas.

Nikolaev on the map

Nikolaev is a city in the south of Ukraine. It is a district and regional center. Located on the peninsula, it is the port of the Black Sea. Within the city, there are two rivers – the Southern Bug and Ingul, and road bridges have been built across them. It was built according to the plan, with straight streets and neighborhoods of a clear shape, despite the complexity of the relief. Founded as a shipyard, it did not have a name for about a year. It received its name in memory of the capture of the Ochakov fortress on the day of St. Nicholas – the patron saint of sailors in 1788. The construction of sailing warships defined the main industry.

In Soviet times, the city was one of the most important regions for shipbuilding. The port and convenient transport routes made Nikolaev a large industrial center. Now the city is crossed by the M-14 highway and the strategic European route E58. On the territory of the region there are about 700 km of railway tracks connecting Nikolaev with Kiev, Odessa, Voznesensk, Crimea, Donbass, etc.

What cards of Ukraine were issued in 1918

There are two original cartographic images of Ukraine as of the first post-revolutionary year. One is the most widespread on the Internet from the historical maps of Ukraine in 1918. It was published in Kharkov at the beginning of the winter of the same year, when the Central Rada of the UPR had just proclaimed the independence of Ukraine.

The second guaranteed authentic map of Ukraine from 1918, a historical relic, published in Austria (Vienna). It was kept in private hands for a long time, until in 2011 it was transferred to the historical museum of the city of Lviv. The discovery of this document was of great importance. The peculiarity of this map is that the borders of the Ukrainian state were indicated on it for the first time in its history (at the time of the map issue, in the fall of 1918 – the Ukrainian state).

The borders of the Ukrainian state in 1918 covered part of the territory of modern Belarus, Transnistria, as well as part of the territory of the Russian Federation (eastern Slobozhanshchina, on the site of the Voronezh and Kursk regions – two hundred and fifty kilometers deep into the Russian border). Also, Ukraine claimed the territory of the Crimean Peninsula and Krasnodar Territory.

The aforementioned maps fixed Ukraine at a time when its statehood was taking shape, and the population was actively developing a national identity.

Ukraine: getting to know each other from space

One glance at Ukraine from a height of several hundred kilometers will tell about its geography faster and more clearly than a whole chapter from a textbook. On the satellite map of Ukraine, it is an Eastern European country washed by the Black Sea in the south and the Azov Sea in the southeast. It shares borders with Belarus, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia, through the Black Sea it is connected with Bulgaria, Georgia and Turkey.

An area of ​​600,000 km², makes Ukraine the second largest state in Europe after Russia, it is twice the size of Italy and quite a bit smaller than the US state of Texas.

From above it is clearly visible that the landscape of the country is mainly plains and plateaus. There are also mountain ranges, the highest peak of Ukraine – Mount Hoverla (height 2,061 meters above sea level) in the Carpathians.

The longest river and an important transport artery is the Dnieper with its two large reservoirs – Kremenchug and Kakhovsky.

A map of Ukraine from a satellite in real time allows you not only to see the whole country as a whole, but also each region and settlement separately. Rivers, lakes, state borders – the Google Maps service makes it possible to see all this from above, just as if you were looking at the Earth from a satellite.

Moreover, if you wish, you can see roads, streets and even individual houses in cities and large villages on the map. The most detailed view can be achieved by zooming in on the map.

A satellite map of Ukraine will not only show every corner of the country at the present time (indicating the exact coordinates and weather indicators), but will also help pave any route and even take a virtual excursion. For example, to stroll through the City Garden in Kiev and see the monument to Anna Akhmatova, you need to enlarge the satellite map of the Ukrainian capital and drag a special icon (little man figurine) from the lower right corner to the place of interest on the map.

Dnepropetrovsk on the map

The city of Yekaterinoslavl (today Dnepropetrovsk) was called the third state capital during the existence of the Russian Empire. At the end of the 18th century, a rapid development of trade and industry began on this territory, and very soon the settlement was given the status of a city. Today Dnepropetrovsk occupies a rather vast territory on the map near the eastern borders of Ukraine. It is divided into two unequal parts by the Dnieper River. On the eastern side of the urban district there is a large reservoir named after A. IN AND. Lenin, which was formed at the junction of the Samara River with its tributaries – Tatarka and Kilchenya.

7 road bridges have been built across the riverbeds in this place and are currently in use. A significant part of the western side of the city is occupied by numerous large and small reservoirs. From a satellite, you can see that the location of the streets of Dnepropetrovsk itself is a highly ramified system. A network of avenues and highways in a complex scheme connect together all the districts of the city, passing on the outskirts into wide highways diverging in different directions.

What is displayed on the political map of Ukraine

The political map of Ukraine reflects the borders of the state and its territorial and administrative division. The map shows the dotted line border between Ukraine and neighboring states, as well as the seas surrounding its territory: Black and Azov. Ukraine has seven neighboring countries: Russia, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova. Also, all waterways, main highways and railways, as well as sea routes connecting cities and neighboring countries are plotted on the political map.

The total length of state borders is 6993 km, of which land – about 5638 km, sea: Black Sea – 1057 km and Azov – 250 km.

The political map of Ukraine with regions is a geographical map with the territories of 24 regions, the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and two cities with a special status: Kiev (the capital of the state) and Sevastopol (a “stumbling block” in relations between Ukraine and Russia). In addition, settlements are indicated: cities, towns, villages. The territories of neighboring regions are painted in different colors to visually distinguish them from each other.

In the lower right corner is the so-called “legend” of the map with symbols and their decoding applied to it.

Zaporizhzhia on the map

Today Zaporozhye is one of the largest cities in Ukraine, as well as one of the main industrial, industrial and cultural centers of the country, stretching on both banks of the Dnieper River, between which the island of Khortytsya is located. At the end of the 18th century, on the site of the beautiful Zaporozhye, the Alexander Fortress was erected, which was supposed to fulfill the function of protecting Russia from the raids of the Tatars. In 1785, the fortification received the status of a posad – an urban-type settlement. And by the beginning of the 19th century, this posad was transformed into the city of Aleksandrovsk with its own town hall.

Today there are more than 250 industrial enterprises in this city. In the southern part of the settlement, several water bodies were formed by the floods of the Dnieper River. The southern border also runs along the Azov coast. From the north, the city is bounded by massive steppes and the Volnyanka River. On the regional map of Zaporozhye, you can see that in the west and east a large number of small provinces are adjacent to the settlement. The city streets are daily crowded with public and transit transport, which makes its way through Zaporozhye. There is a crossing of the Dnieper River within the boundaries of the settlement in 3 places.

Donetsk on the map

Donetsk is the capital of the large industrial region Donbass and the administrative center of the Donetsk region. The Sea of ​​Azov is located 95 kilometers south of it.

Since the middle of the 18th century, coal has been mined in the city and the region. And now within the city there are more than 125 mounds of waste from coal mining. Waste heaps can be seen all over Donetsk.

The area of ​​the city is 385 square kilometers. About 2500 km of them are occupied by city highways, squares and boulevards. There are approximately 2,200 avenues, streets and lanes in Donetsk.

From a bird’s eye view, you can see that the city is surrounded on all sides by forests, rivers, steppes and hills.

The largest river flowing within the city is Kalmius. In 1967, a concrete dam was built, blocking the channel of the Shirokaya River. This body of water became known as the Donetsk Sea.

The Verkhnekalmiusskoye reservoir is located in the northern part of the city and is surrounded by forests from the east, from the south – by the Kalmius river floods. Donetsk Sea is located in the south of the city. The Donetsk Sea and the Nizhnekalmiusskoe reservoir are the main water supply facilities in Donetsk and the region.

Kremenchuk on the map

Kremenchuk is a regional center in the Poltava region (central part of Ukraine). It is located on both sides of the Dnieper, the territory stretched from north to south in a strip no more than 8 km wide. Surrounded by forests and numerous bodies of water.

Initially, there was a fishing farm on the left side of the Dnieper near the ferry. Later, by order of King Sigismund II of Poland, the construction of a small wooden fortress with a palisade and an earthen rampart was begun here to protect against the Crimean Tatars. The Chigirinsky regiment was stationed there. The official date of the foundation of the city is considered to be 1571. On the right bank in 1637, the Cossacks formed the Kryukovsky Posad, in 1796 it became part of Kremenchug.

The city is divided into two districts: Avtozavodskaya and Kryukovskiy. The first includes the main industrial areas, the second – mostly residential (the left-bank historical center of Kremenchug with a train station and Kryukov beyond the river).

Transport (road and rail) communication across the Dnieper is carried out using the Kryukovsky bridge. The Alexandria – Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk – Kiev highways also pass through Kremenchug. There are two railway stations serving long-distance trains. There is a large port and an airfield.
