Kryvyi Rih is a beautiful 18th century riverside city in the Dnipropetrovsk region of Ukraine. It is scenically based along the confluence of Saksahan and Inhulets rivers, and derives its unusual name from a nearby crooked horn-shaped lake. You would be more than enchanted by its superb landscape and architectural heritage- the latter, in particular, being a mix of Eclecticism, Neoclassical, Stalinist and contemporary signatures. The same is holds true for its thriving theatre, circus and dance scene, and perhaps you would never run out of large performance venues here.
It is the longest city in Europe for its consistent 80 miles stretch through a belt of iron ore deposits. Kryvyi Rih’s historical identity revolves around a glorious industrial evolution and the best way to explore it would be to visit some museums that beautifully depict the way iron metallurgy has forged this city’s identity.

It is named after the noted Ukrainian poet and writer, TG Shevchenko.
