Zaporozhye, former (until 1921) Aleksandrovsk, is the cradle of Zaporizhian Cossacks, whose glory is well-known outside Ukraine. The city of Zaporozhye is more than 200 years old and is situated about 600 km to the southeast of Kiev, Ukraine’s capital. The population is 815,000. The city is built on the wide plains along both banks of the mighty and ancient Dnieper River, which gives Zaporozhye a unique atmosphere.

The climatic conditions of Zaporozhye favour the development of vegetation, agriculture and tourism. The hot summer and mild winter seasons account for mixed weather conditions. However, the climate here is relatively dry.

The present day city was founded as a Russian fortress in 1770. Originally known as Aleksandrovsk, the city saw rapid industrialization at the end of the 20th century and further growth with the construction of the hydroelectric station (1928-1932). Such growth has also facilitated Zaporozhye's development as a major educational center. The city is a home to the Zaporizhia State University plus numerous technical institutes, research facilities, and medical schools. Today it is said that one in every four residents is either a student or a scholar.
