Yuzhnoukrainsk foundation date can be considered end-April 1975, when first builders of South-Ukrainian nuclear power plant brought earth-moving machines on the collective field spreading on the south outskirts of very old village of Konstantinovka.
Before finalizing the placement of a new city, planners and economists considered several projects. After a lot of discussions, the advantage received the draft, according to which the amount of agricultural land used was minimal, and the town was to be erected on the coastal slopes as a part of rural development.
This decision added additional challenges to the builders. On the other hand, they were even happy with the fact that they would repeat a unique project of Budapest city and build a beautiful modern town on the banks of an ancient river.
The town was named Konstantinovka-2. April 2, 1987, the town built for the needs of South-Ukrainian nuclear power plant received the new name - Yuzhnoukrainsk (meaning “South-Ukrainian”).
