| I was born here. My family lives here. My granny always calls our town the pearl of the Donetsk region. I feel that is the real truth because it is the oldest historical and cultural centre of Donetsk Region.
| It is located on the Bakhmutka River and its historical name is Bakhmut. It was founded in 1571 and known as Bakhmutska Storozha. Bakhmut Cossacks lived here and defended the saltworks from Tatar attack.
