Hadiach (Ukrainian: Гáдяч, romanizedHadyach, Russian: Гáдяч, romanizedGadyach, Polish: Hadziacz), sometimes spelled Hadyach, Gadyach, Gadiach, Haditch, or Hadziacz, is a city of regional significance[2] in Poltava Oblast (province) in the central-east part of Ukraine. Located on the Psel River, the city is an administrative center of the Hadiach Raion (district), though administratively it does not belong to the raion.

Overview[edit]

Hadiach was granted city rights in 1634. It was a city of Kiev Voivodeship, Cossack Hetmanate, and Poltava Governorate.

At times of Cossack Hetmanate, Hadiach was a residence of Ukrainian Hetman Ivan Briukhovetsky, election of which saw division of the Hetmanate along the Dnieper river (see The Ruin (Ukrainian history)).

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