Brovary is located about 20 km (12.4 miles) east of the capital Kiev.
It is one of the largest industrial and administrative centers of Kiev oblast.
There is no clear evidence of the time of town foundation. Archaeological findings prove, that the territory of the contemporary city and its suburbs were populated as far back as in the XI century. The name "Brovary” was firstly mentioned in 1630, at that time most part of the territory belonged to Osterske starostwo (administrative unit in Lithuanian princedom) ruled by prince Yarema Vyshnevetsky.
The very name of Brovary can be also found in some documents relating to XVIII century. Its name translated from Ukrainian means "brewers".
Convenient geographical location (close to Kiev) and marvelous natural conditions are factors of the town’s rapid development. At the end of the XIXth century it became the centre of the volost (a unit of administrative division in the XIX century).
Famous Ukrainian writer Taras Shevchenko visited Brovary on several occasions, in his poem "Catherina” there is a reference to the city.
Today, Brovary is Ukraine's shoe-making capital with a lot of such companies located here. At Brovary, there is also a broadcasting centre for long and shortwaves.
Several world and Olympic champions were born and began their career here.
Ukraine's national mint facility is located in Brovary.
