From historical figures only Dmitri Yavornitsky included to the Dnipropetrovsk list, which involves as many as three sites with 23. Instead, we does not see the list such important figures of Ukraine as a historians Dmytro Doroshenko and Jacob Novitsky, as writers Andrian Kashchenko Oles Gonchar. Ukrainian revolutionary leader Isaac Mazepa is out of list also.

Dnipropetrovsk region is one of the most important industrial regions of Ukraine. It is strange, that such objects as Dnipropetrovsk missile plant Pivdenmash, or uranium mines in Zhovti Vody, or a unique city, named after the chemical element – Marganec, or Kryvyj Rig iron ore plants, or the world's largest blast furnace in the same Kryvyj Rig are not considered as heritage.

None of these characteristics of our industrial power is not considered nor historical, nor the industrial heritage. Apparently, there was no instructions to be proud of the industry.
