Dzhankoy (also Djankoy, Dzhankoi, Ukrainian and Russian: Джанкой, Crimean Tatar: Canköy) is a city in the north of Crimea, Ukraine, and the administrative center of the Dzhankoy raion. It is located about 93 kilometres (58 mi) from the Crimean capital, Simferopol. Two railroad lines, Kharkiv-Sevastopol and Armyansk-Kerch, cross Dzhankoy. In 1926, Dzhankoy was granted city status.
Dzhankoy is a great transportation hub. Through the city pass two major railways of the peninsula as well as two major European highways. It has two railroad terminals - the central one, where only passenger and fast trains stop and the suburb one - where only suburb trains, known as elektrichki are allowed.
The name Dzhankoy is often translated into English from Crimean Tatar as "spirit-village" (can — spirit, köy — village) -Canköy. But real meaning of this name is "new village": canköy < cañı köy (cañı is "new" in the northern dialect of Crimean Tatar).
Dzhankoy's climate is mostly hot in the summer, and mild in the winter. The average temperature ranges from −1.8 °C (28.8 °F) in January, to 23.3 °C (73.9 °F) in July. The average precipitation is 418 millimetres (16.5 in) per year.
