Hadiach (Ukrainian: Гáдяч, Russian: Гáдяч, Polish: Hadziacz), sometimes spelled Hadyach, Gadyach, Gadiach, or Hadziacz, is a historic city in Poltava Oblast (province) in the central-east part of Ukraine. Located on the Psel River, the city is an administrative center of the Hadyatskyi Raion (district). Population 22,267 (est).[1]

Hadiach was granted city rights in 1634.

Hadiach is one of the main points of interest to Hasidic Jews visiting Ukraine due to the old cemetery that is on the river running through the city, where Shneur Zalman of Liadi is buried.

Book featuring Hadiach[edit]

The main characeters in Nikolai Gogol's story Ivan Fyodorovich Shponka and His Aunt are from Hadiach (Gadyach in the 1957 translation by David Magarshack).
