Sumy: location and attractions

The city of Sumy is located on the banks of the Psel River, just where the Bagna River flows into it. In addition, within the city limits, the Bag receives tributaries: the Arrow and Popadka. The origin of the name of the city is associated with two rivers: Sumah and Bag, which on both sides washed it.

The first settlement on the territory of the present Sumy existed in the second century AD. The city itself, according to different sources, was founded in 1652 or 1655. Its founder is Colonel Gerasim Kondratyev, who came to the shore of Psla in 1655 with a group of Cossacks. For several centuries of its existence, Sumy was part of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and Ukraine itself, whose regional center it is at the moment.

If you ever happen to be in the city of Sumy, be sure to visit its main attractions: the Kharitonenko and Sumovskiy manors, the Banking Academy and its square, the Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as well as numerous monuments, museums, parks, churches and cathedrals.
