Dnipro – One of the Most Unusual Cities of Ukraine

Dnipro (the former Yekaterinoslav and Dnipropetrovsk), located in south-eastern Ukraine, is the administrative center of the Dnipropetrovsk region, the fourth most populous city in the country after Kyiv, Kharkiv and Odessa.

It was one of the key centers of the Soviet metallurgical, nuclear, defense, and space industries. Today, Dnipro remains one of the most important political, industrial, financial, scientific, and cultural centers of Ukraine. Photos by: Alexander Belenkiy.

Since the beginning of the 2000s, a large number of new buildings were constructed in Dnipro (both residential and commercial objects) and the city center became unlike other cities of eastern Ukraine that resemble each other.

Most of the iconic new buildings of Dnipro were designed in the architectural bureau of Alexander Dolnik. He is sometimes called the father of the present Dnipro. Unfortunately he died in 2013 and after that the developing of the city was continued by different companies.
