From September 30 to October 7, the World Boxing Council  Family will be celebrating its 56th convention in  Kiev, the Capital and largest city of Ukraine.

We want to share Kiev`s rich and vivid history,  with six events that developed this wonderful place, which will host one of the most important events in Sport.

The history of Kiev dates back at least 1,400 years, and we`ve gathered some monumental moments in time, which shaped and developed Kiev. They are :

482 AD: Kiev Foundation

According to legend, Kiev was founded and established by three brothers, Kyi, Shchek and Khoryv, and their sister Lybid. The city is named after the older brother, Prince Polianian Kyi. It is said that the location of the city was predicted by Saint Andrew, who was attracted by the magnificent  views of the mountain coasts along the Dnieper River.

988 AD: Christianization of Kievan Rus

The baptism of the residents of Kiev in the Dnieper River was the most important  religious event of the century. This started a  new chapter in the history of Kievan Rus' when Christianity became a recognized  religion. The Christianization began after Vladimir the Great was baptized in Chersonesus, deciding  to convert his family and the entire city.

1240: attack of the Mongol-Tatar forces

In the middle of the thirteenth century the hard times impacted Kiev. The Mongol-Tatar forces led by Batu Khan besieged and then completely destroyed the city, together  with its cultural and historical gems. This event led to the end of the era of Kievan Rus. Up to 1362 the people  were forced to accept the Mongol-Tatar reign.

1648: Kiev becomes the center of the Cossack Regiment.

While establishing the rule of the Cossack Hetmanate, Bohdan Khmelnytsky together with his army made a triumphal entry into Kiev. The city was proclaimed the center of the Cossack Regiment of Kiev Hetmanate.

1941-43: Battle of Kiev

During the Second World War, Nazi Germany occupied Kiev. This was a terrible and bitter blow for Kiev and its citizens.  Dozens of buildings were destroyed, many people were killed, captured and imprisoned.  Finally, in 1943, the city was recaptured by the Soviet Red Army.

1991: The independence of Ukraine.

On August 24, the Ukrainian Parliament adopted and enacted the Independence Act, which was crucial for the entire nation. Kiev was proclaimed the capital of Ukraine.
