HISTORY

  • Area arose with the city basis - even in the middle of the seventeenth century
  • In Soviet times, the area was called "Tevelev area" and "area of the Soviet Ukraine," but on the day of adoption of the Constitution (28 June 1996) received its present name
  • Up to the present time it is the central area of the city.

This square arose along with the foundation of the city - back in the middle of the seventeenth century.

At first it was called a fair, because for two centuries before the City Day (historically, City Day was dedicated to the feast day of the central temple of Kharkov - the Assumption Cathedral), this place hosted the annual fair, one of the largest in Slobozhanshchyna. Later, the square was renamed Nikolaevskaya, in honor of the erected church, which was demolished in 1930. In Soviet times, the square was called “Tevelev Square” and “Square of Soviet Ukraine”, but on the day of the adoption of the Constitution (June 28, 1996) it received its modern name. Until now, it is the central square of the city.
