Syeverodonetsk Overview

Syeverodonetsk is often called the Pearl of the Donets Basin. It is a compact city located on the left bank of the Seversky Donets. The residents of Syevyerodonetsk regard their city as a very special one: sunny, cozy, comfortable for living. In summer it is full of greenery and flowers. Seeing them, you would hardly believe that eighty years ago there was nothing but sand and weeds here, on the left bank of the Seversky Donets, where there is a modern developing city that is approaching European standards now.
Syeverodonetsk was founded in the thirties of the last century due to the construction of a nitrogen fertilizer plant (now Azot Corporation) on the sandy territory that stretched on the left bank of the Seversky Donets. The government adopted a resolution on building the country’s largest nitrogen fertilizer plant in September 1933.
This city is a recognized cultural center of Luhansk region. Its population is now about 125 thousand inhabitants. The city became the capital of Luhansk region in the fall of 2014 after the tragic events of that year.
