Today in Ukraine, we can observe the process of recovery of historical memory at all levels – national, local, personal. Unfortunately, not every resident of our city knows the history of his native land, although it is known that people who do not know their own history, cannot understand the present and build the future. This statement is particularly relevant for today's youth, living in the era of change, to understand which it is necessary to look into the past of their country and city. Analysis of the research. Among the various studies that reveal in detail the early history of the city on the Dnieper River, an important place belongs to works by D. Yavornytsky, S. Revsky, G. Gulyaev, V. Starostin, M. Kavun and others. The purpose of the article is making a comparative analysis of the causes and consequences of two construction projects of Katerynoslav on the Kilchen' and on the Dnipro. Conclusion. The early history of our city demonstrates that Russian colonization power understood the strategic importance of its location, as there were here from the sixteenth century Ukrainian settlements such as Samar, Old Kodak, New Kodak and more. The Russian concept of building “the third imperial capital" was defeated, as it was being held only on the personal enthusiasm of Catherine II and her favorite Potemkin, but the real development of the city as an industrial center of Dnieper region began only in the late nineteenth century. Rich historical and cultural heritage on the territory of modern city creates excellent conditions for the development of diverse tourism industry, which can direct metropolis life in a new direction.
