Ukraine is the largest European country and home for more than 40 million people. Being the new in its independent condition, Ukraine has a long history of existence though. The land is the cradle of Eastern Slavic culture and statehood. The capital of modern Ukraine, Kiev had been founded in the late ninth century and shortly after that became the main city of the first East Slavs’ state called Kievan Rus’. During the 10th and 11th centuries the Kievan Rus’ was the largest state in Europe. The turning to Christianity had been happened in Kiev in 998. According to the legends, the ritual was set in Dnieper River, now considered to be the main Ukrainian river. Historical events of the past times and recent revolution make up the range of subjects for coins of Ukraine issued for collecting. The name of the current legal tender Ukrainian coins and notes is hryvnia.
Further history of the country was rather dramatic because of constant foreign invasions and dominations. Different parts of Ukraine referred to various states, mostly Golden Horde, Poland and Austria. The first sovereign Ukrainian state was set in 17th century by Zaporozhian Cossacks. Zaporozhian Host was a kind of republic, made up from the people fighting against all the oppressors: Poles, Russians, Tatars and Turks. The resistance of Cossacks in the end was ruined and Ukrainian lands were divided between empires. Ukrainian history later knew short periods of independence during the fight with Russian Communists, but after the World War II whole Ukraine was occupied by USSR and became the Soviet Ukrainian Republic. The country finally has got its independence after the dissolution of Soviet Union in 1991.
