Fly with Austrian Airlines to Kharkiv and experience an important industrial center situated in the North Eastern Ukraine, which, until the formation of the USSR in 1934, was the capital city of that country. The city has two cathedrals: the Cathedral of the Protectoress, built in 1686, and the Cathedral of the Assumption, built in 1771. There is also a bell tower there to commemorate the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1812. A recent addition to the city's landscape is a Buddhist Temple which was built by the city's Vietnamese minority community in 2007. The city boasts 13 national universities, together with numerous research institutions, which include three national science centers. Kharkiv is served by an International airport with regular fights to Vienna and other destinations.
