UCRANIA | La Tierra de Belleza

Hello Chile!!! I have discovered a lot about you’re beautiful nation on Skyscrapercity and that’s why I opened this thread so you can discover something about my nation. I will give you some background on Ukraine, but most of the this thread will consist of photos. So please sit back and enjoy. I will love to hear all the comments, and questions that you have about Ukraine. I don’t speak much Spanish so I am going to write in English, but don’t be shy and write in Spanish you’re feedback will be appreciated.



The beginning of Ukraine

Human settlement in Ukraine has been documented into distant prehistory. The late Neolithic Trypillian Culture flourished from about 4500 BC to 3000 BC. The Copper Age people of the Trypillian Culture resided in the western part, and the Sredny Stog Culture further east, succeeded by the early Bronze Age.
During the Iron Age, these were followed by the Dacians, Cimmerians, Scythians, Sarmatians, among other nomadic peoples. The Scythian Kingdom existed here from 750 BC to 250 BC. Along with ancient Greek colonies founded in the 6th century BC on the north-eastern shore of the Black Sea, the colonies of Tyras, Olbia, Hermonassa, continued as Roman and Byzantine cities until the 6th century AD.
In the 3rd century AD, the Goths arrived in the lands of Ukraine around 250 AD to 375 AD, which they called Oium. The Ostrogoths stayed in the area but came under the sway of the Huns from the 370s. North of the Ostrogothic kingdom was the Kyiv Culture, flourishing from the 2nd to 5th centuries.
With the power vacuum created at the end of Hunnic and Gothic rule, Slavic tribes, possibly emerging from the remnants of the Kiev culture, began to expand over much of what is now Ukraine during the 5th century, and beyond to the Balkans from the 6th century. In the 7th century, the territory of modern Ukraine was the core of the state of the Bulgars. At the end of the 7th century, most Bulgar tribes migrated in several directions across Central-Eastern Europe and to Caucasus.

Golden Age of Kyiv

Kyivan-Rus
In the 11th century, Kyivan-Rus’ was, geographically, the largest state in Europe, becoming known in the rest of Europe as Ruthenia especially for western principalities. The name "Ukraine", meaning "in-land" or "native-land”, first appears in historical documents of 12th century and then on history maps of the 16th century period. The meaning of this term seems to have been synonymous with the land of Rus' propria-the principalities of Kyiv, Chernihic, and Pereyaslav. The term, "Greater Rus'" was used to apply to all the lands ruled by Kiev, including those that were not just Slavic, but also Finno-Ugric in the north-east portions of the state. Local regional subdivisions of Rus' appeared in the Slavic heartland, including, "Belarus'" (White Ruthenia), "Chorna Rus'" (Black Ruthenia) and "Cherven' Rus'" (Red Ruthenia) in north-western and western Ukraine.
Although Christianity had made inroads into territory of Ukraine before the first ecumenical council, the Council of Nicea (325) and, in Western Ukraine during the time of empire of Great Morovia, the formal governmental acceptance of Christianity in Rus' occurred at in 988. The major cause of the Christianization of Kyivan-Rus’ was the Grand-Duke, Volodymyr (Vladimir) the Great and his grandmother Olha.
Conflict among the various principalities of Rus', in spite of the efforts of Grand Prince Volodymyr Monomah, led to decline, beginning in the12th century. In Rus' propria, the Kiev region, the nascent Rus' principalities of Halych and Volynia extended their rule. In the north, the name of Moscow appeared in the historical record in the principality of Suzdal, which gave rise to the nation of Russia. In the north-west, the principality of Polotsk increasingly asserted the autonomy of Belarus’. Kiev was sacked by Vladimir principality (1169) in the power struggle between princes and later by Cumans and Mongol raiders in the 12th and 13th centuries. Until the Galicia-Volhynia kingdom in the western part of Ukraine that got rid of the Mongol rule in Europe.

Chernivtsi: A city in Southwestern part of Ukraine. Its beginnings date back to 2nd centry. In 1775, Chernivtsi and other parts of Moldova at that time was annexed by the Austrian Empire. This whole region became known as Bukovina. The city of Chernivtsi became the region's capital, which in 1849 was raised in status and became known as the Duchy of Bukovina, a crowland of the Austrian Empire, and received Magdeburg rights. During the 19th and 20th century this city was an important cultural center for Ukrainian, Romanian, and Jewish people.

The last city you showed is really cozy and charming. it gives me an idea how Valparaiso would look if all the buildings were painted...

I must say it has some similarities except Valparaiso is situated more on the hills so it looks more spread out, also it has a big city feel to it.
