The history of Kharkov begins in 1654, it was at this time the city was founded on the high plateau of the watershed of the rivers Kharkov and Lopan. The founder of the city is the mythical Cossack Kharkov. In the years 1919-1934 Kharkiv was the capital of Soviet Ukraine, and later became the third in the Soviet Union after Moscow and Leningrad's scientific and industrial center.
The central street of the city, which has a lot of ancient buildings is Sumskaya. It connects the two main squares of the city: Constitution Square, Tower decorated town hall, and Liberty Square.
