Not each of the locals has been to the museum, although it’s worth to visit to know more about Makiivka. The expositions devoted to the nature of the area, the history of the city and the development of the Donbass. You will have known a lot of interesting facts. Not many people know the area was a part of the Crimean Khanate to the 18th century when it was captured by Russia and populated mostly by Ukrainians. The city itself was founded in 1892 and named Dmitrievsk after Saint Demetrius. The communists renamed the city to Makiivka which sounds in Ukrainian like a village name, because they disrespected the religion. Because of that strange renaming now a lot of people believe Makiivka is a small town, whilst it’s a big industrial city indeed. Although there’re actually had been a village with such a name in the area before the city was founded.

If you’re already in Makiivka, it’s definitely worth to visit. But neither this nor any other attraction in the city isn’t interesting enough for a special visit to Makiivka because of it.
