This is the largest city which has so far gone nearly unnoticed on these boards. You've all seen the growing, historical and modern capital Kyiv, the medieval Lviv, the coastal souther city of Odessa and the business megapolis Dnipropetrovsk. But what about Donetsk? Some are probably curious about its appearance.

Enormous metallurgical plant


Artificial mountains


Coal miner statue


Commie statue :D "for the fighters for council's (soviet) power!"


Cannon


Pushkin


Palm tree


Lenin square :)


Hotel


Restaurant




Pyramid


Court House, in a Greco-Roman style




Opera House




Drama Theater




Interesting building of a permanent circus. The glass needs to be cleaned, but otherwise I like it very much.


Academical Drama-Musical theater


Palace of Youth


Puppet Threater


Aerial


Downtown




Highway


Shopping centres










Hotel


Cathedral


Constructions


Street


Residentials


Offices


New library - love it


Office buildings u/c


and last but not least ;)


That u/c building in the back is Office building "Shark"

Wow! It's really coming along nicely then. Subways seem to be apart of Ukrainian culture heh:)

Yes, we like our subways :) but construction of Donetsk subway network has been going for 15 years now, very slow, difficult and expensive process.

Here is the map showing city location


And an interesting office tower that will soon rise in the city
