About the place

The Social City is a residential area built in the 1930s in the modern city of Zaporizhzhia. The brightest objects include the heart of the industrial Zaporizhzhia - DniproHES, around which was built a wonderful urban development.
The Social city is a combination of a number of unique architectural monuments that are concentrated in a small area. Built with enormous scope and splendor, it is a grand building of rare specimens of nowadays 20-30s construction and magnificent examples of the post-war Stalin Empire.

The Social City was built at the same time with DniproHES and the Zaporizhzhia Metallurgical Complex. Construction was completed in 3 years, from 1929 to 1932.
The Social City was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War: in 1945 there were only 6 habitable homes left. In the postwar period it was rebuilt almost from scratch.
The sights of Social city:
- Tower on the building of coke plant;
- Lavrov's Houses;
- Outpatient town;
- Kozliner's Tower;
- Round house;
- Commune houses;
- Propyley houses;
- Monument to Nikolay Rybnikov;
- Monument to industrial Zaporizhzhia;
- Concert Hall named after M.I.Glinka.

In recent years, research has been conducted in Social city, scientists and architects are studying the Sixth Settlement (this is how the Social city was called during its construction). The results of these studies include the planned listing of it as an integrated site in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
