'''Kiev''' ( making Kiev the 8th largest city in Europe (Largest cities in Europe).
Kiev is an important industrial, scientific (science), educational, and cultural (culture) centre of Eastern Europe. It is home to many high-tech (High tech) industries, higher education institutions and world-famous historical landmarks. The city has an extensive infrastructure and highly developed system of public transport, including the Kiev Metro.
The city's name is said to derive from the name of Kyi (Kyi, Schek and Khoryv), one of its four legendary founders (see Name (Kiev#Name), below). During its history (History of Kiev), Kiev, one of the oldest cities in Eastern Europe, passed through several stages of great prominence and relative obscurity. The city probably existed as a commercial centre as early as the 5th century. A Slavic (Slavs) settlement on the great trade route between Scandinavia and Constantinople, Kiev was a tributary of the Khazars, Columbia Encyclopedia, article Kiev until seized by the Varangians (Vikings) in the mid-9th century. Under Varangian rule, the city became a capital of the Kievan Rus', the first East Slavic (East Slavs) state. Completely destroyed during the Mongol invasion (Mongol invasion of Rus') in 1240, the city lost most of its influence for the centuries to come. It was a provincial capital of marginal importance in the outskirts of the territories controlled by its powerful neighbours; first the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, followed by Poland (Crown of the Kingdom of Poland) and Russia (Russian Empire).
The city prospered again during the Russian Empire's Industrial Revolution in the late 19th century. In 1917, after the Ukrainian National Republic declared independence from the Russian Empire, Kiev became its capital. From 1919 Kiev was an important center of the Armed Forces of South Russia and was controlled by the White Army. From 1921 onwards Kiev was a city of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, which was proclaimed by the Red Army, and, from 1934, Kiev was its capital. During World War II (Eastern Front (World War II)), the city again suffered significant damage, but quickly recovered in the post-war years, remaining the third largest city of the Soviet Union.
Following the collapse of the Soviet Union (Collapse of the Soviet Union (1985–1991)) and Ukrainian independence (History of Ukraine) in 1991, Kiev remained the capital of Ukraine and experienced a steady migration influx of ethnic Ukrainians from other regions of the country.
