As a great lover of my native city I'd like to share more information about it. So Zhytomyr is an administrative centre in the central part of Ukraine. It is situated on the Teteriv river. The population is about 290.000 people.  It is an ancient city. It was founded in the 9th century. Zamkova Gora is a starting point of  the history of our city. One of the legends says that a Slav Tribe of Zhytyches lived there. Zhytomyr means “Zhyto” and “Myr”.                                                                                                                                                      This city with an old history, interesting landmarks and unique landscapes attracts more and more tourists every year. Some of them arrive here to enjoy its amazing nature. Others can't  help admiring cultural attractions and historical places.                                                              

Zhytomyr is proud of its architecture, cathedrals and churches. The number one place to see is the Cathedral of the Transfiguration. Built in the 19th century, the church is considered to be the citys symbol. It's majestic beauty and size are truly impressive. Its towers are 53 meters (170 feet) high.                 

 Another remarkable monument of sacral architecture, the Saint Sophia Catholic Church, built in the 18th century, is situated on the hill of Zhytomyr. Its unique look is the effect of the harmonious mixture of two architectural styles, the Baroque and Late Renaissance.                                                                                                                                                            My city is a significant cultural center of Ukraine. There are many places of interest in Zhytomyr. Here you can visit the Museum of Local History, the Museum of Nature, the Korolenko and Korolyov Memorial Museums, the Museum of Fire Service. The Museum of  Cosmonautics named after Sergiy Koroliov is the first choice to see for a lot of people around the world.  Sergiy Pavlovych Koroliov was the founder of  practical cosmonautics and the designer of the first space rocket. (in 1907 he was born in Zhytomyr). The museum’s exhibitions consist of two parts. One part, which includes his personal items, documents and furniture, occupies his childhood home. Another part is the exposition of the  pavilion "Space", opened in 1991. It represents the originals and models of space vehicles, spacesuits and other equipment including the technological model of the Soyuz spacecraft, the Lunokhod-2 model. The capsule with the soil of the Moon, presented by NASA, is one of the most valuable exhibits.                                                                                                               As for places of entertainment one can go to the Drama Theatre named after Ivan Kocherga, the Philarmonic Society, one of the cinemas, the park named after Yury Gagarin or the hydro park .

 Chatskys Head is  a must see of the city. It is a rock of an unusual shape over the Teteriv River  ( 30 meters), a geological monument of national importance. Due to one of the legends, the Polish nobleman Chatsky, who was pursued by the Cossaks, jumped into the river from it.                                                                                                     

    It's no wonder people of Zhytomyr are lucky to live in a pleasant city and still be able to get out into the picturesque nature landmarks .
