Picturesque Old Houses of Mariupol

Mariupol is a large city located in the Donetsk region in the east of Ukraine, on the shore of the Azov Sea, a major seaport, as well as a climatic and mud resort. In 2016, Mariupol was recognized by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine as one of the most comfortable cities for living in the country.

Mariupol has a large number of interesting old buildings constructed in the 19th – first half of the 20th centuries. Unfortunately not all of them are in a well-preserved condition. Let’s look at some of them. Photos by: Evgeny Sosnovsky.
