Detailed description

On the southern territories of the Russian Federation is the ancient city of Belgorod. Disputes about the period of its occurrence does not cease to this day. Belgorod ethnographer Shmelev N. considers the base date of the city far 995 years. But most historians associate the appearance of Belgorod with the construction in 1596 of border forts, a decree on the creation of which has issued the king Fyodor Ivanovich. The chronicles indicate that the settlement was of other names - Belogorodov, Bělohrad, White Tower.

Frequent raids of Crimean Tatars in the seventeenth century led to the construction of the fortress through a defensive line that protected the capital of Russia. Important strategic town remained until joining the Russian Empire Ukrainian territory. In 1785, the Belgorod fortress in connection with the conquest of the Crimea is excluded from the existing ones.

Construction of the railway in the mid-nineteenth century, connected the Belgorod to Moscow, gave a powerful impetus to the development of the city. After the First World War, the territory of the Belgorod region at the time went to Ukraine. During the last decade of December 1918 and the first decade of January 1919 the town was even temporary capital of Ukraine.

During two periods of the Nazi occupation of Belgorod it has lost almost all monuments. The remains of the first castle and the ancient Kremlin were completely destroyed in the 50-ies of XX century in the development of the Cretaceous deposits.

Fifth August Belgorod celebrate the city dedicated to the date of the liberation from Nazi invaders Belgorod. Nowadays, the city is known as a major regional center, famous for its cleanliness and beautification of streets.
