Nizhyn

2.7
Nížyn is a city located in Chernihiv Oblast (province) of northern Ukraine, along the Oster River, 150km north-east of the nation's capital, Kiev. It is the administrative center of Nizhyn Raion, though the city itself is incorporated as a city of oblast significance and does not belong to the raion. Once it was a major city of the Chernigov Governorate. Population:HistoryThe earliest known references to the location go back to 1147, when it was briefly mentioned as Unenezh. In the times of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Nizhyn was granted Magdeburg rights (1625) as a self-governing town. In 1663 Nizhyn was the place of the Black Council of Ukrainian Cossacks, which elected Bryukhovetsky as the new Hetman of the Zaporizhian Host thus conditionally dividing Ukraine (Cossack Hetmanate) into left-bank Ukraine and right-bank Ukraine. It was also the seat of a major Cossack regiment (until 1782).
Nizhyn is in Chernihiv Oblast. Our Ukraine itinerary planning tool allows you to schedule your trip to Nizhyn, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
