Slavutych is the youngest city in Ukraine. On the 2nd of October, 1986, the decision to build a new city for the workers of Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and their families was issued.  The city planning was executed in autumn and winter of the same year, and the construction itself began in December. On 26th of March, 1988, the first accomodation order was given in. The construction of the city involved the architects and builders from eight Soviet Republics – Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian, Georgian, Azerbaijan, Armenian, Ukrainian, and Russian – thus the national tincture is seen in every quarter.
