Rozdolne (Ukrainian: Роздольне; Russian: Раздольное; Crimean Tatar: Aqşeyh [Акъшейх]; German: Deutsch-Akscheich; until December 1944, Aksheykh [Ак-Шейх]) is an urban-type settlement in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, a territory recognized by a majority of countries as part of Ukraine and incorporated by Russia as the Republic of Crimea. The town also serves as the administrative center of the Rozdolne Raion (district), housing the district's local administration buildings.[2]

As of the 2001 Ukrainian Census, its population was 8,163.[2] Current population: 7,352 (2014 Census).[3]

The village of Deutsch-Akscheich (Ак-Шеих Немецкий) was founded by Black Sea German settlers from the Berdyansk area in 1897.[4]
