The city of Poltava, located in the northern part of Ukraine, dates back to 1174 years. The city, which is also the administrative unit of the same oblast with its own name, has an airport and 3 universities. Poltava, which has witnessed war and destruction many times in history, but has been rebuilt, is the most historical city in Ukraine. It attracts a wealth of tourists with its historical, cultural monuments and museums. Poltava Airport, which has domestic and international flights for about 5 years ago, is not used today. The use of Ukrainian has become widespread especially in the city, which is also small in size. Although all the people speak Russian or their mother tongue is Russian, they generally use their own language, Ukrainian. The use of English in the city is very low, but the number of people who speak English is very low.
Since the 1980s, we can say that Poltava has developed rapidly in the oil, gas, chemical, mining, automotive, electrical and textile industries. Today, although small, it is a city that has come to the forefront with its industry and hosts very important factories. More than half of the city’s population is working, and it is known that there are 11,200 students in the city. The city is named after the Latava River, which passes through the city.
