More than a third of the original inhabitants of Kharkov are Moldovans!When the city was a little village, over 9000 men and women from Moldova were given a permission by the Tsar of Russian Empire to settle down in Kharkov (at that time a settlement of approximately 16-18 thousand people).The city was captured by Nazi Germany and its military allies on 24 October 1941; the city was successfully retaken by the Soviets on 16 February 1943, captured for a second time by the Germans on 16 March 1943 and then finally liberated on 23 August 1943.Before the occupation, Kharkov's tank industries were evacuated to the Urals with all their equipment, and became the heart of Red Armie's tank programs (particularly, producing the legendary T-34 tank earlier designed in Kharkov).
Among them there are world famous giants like the Morozov Design Bureau and the Malyshev Tank Factory, leaders in tank production since the 1930s; Hartron (aerospace and nuclear electronics); and the Turboatom (turbines producer).
These enterprises were returned after the war, and continue to produce some of the world's best tanks.
Kharkov was the third largest scientific-industrial center in the former USSR (after Moscow and Leningrad). Kharkov is Ukraine's second largest city and most country sports are taken seriously there. The city has several football clubs playing in the Ukrainian National competitions.
Kharkov served as the capital of Ukraine from 1919 till 1934, during those years the city was being renovated and modernized hastily and probably the most famous building in Kharkov built at that time was the Gosprom.
The Gosprom or Derzhprom (in Ukrainian) was built during the late 1920-ies and was often referred to as the first Soviet sky-scraper, the original height of the building (63 meters) may not impress us now, but at the time when it was built it looked almost surreal and extremely modern.
One of the places you should see when you are in Kharkov is the Liberty Square.
