Fastiv (Ukrainian: Фа́стів, Fastiv) is a city located in the Kiev Oblast (Oblast in central Ukraine, the administrative center of the Fastivskyi Raion (district). Population is about 52,300 (as of 2012).[1]

Lying on conjunction of railway lines, Fastiv is an important node station on the rail route from central Europe to Russia and Asia. Brewing and machinery industry are also present, although the majority of inhabitants are employed by the Ukrzaliznytsia's 12 railway installations in the city.

History[edit]

Fastiv is a historical city that survived through Cossack uprisings and the Great Turkish War with the period of total devastation and later resettlement. Landmarks of those times include Pokrovska Tserkva - a 17th-century Orthodox church, also known as Paliy Church (after the Cossack leader Semen Paliy). There is also an early 20th-century Catholic church.
