Karazin University Celebrates Vasyl Karazin’s 247th Birthday Anniversary


On February 10, 2020, Karazin University community celebrates the birthday of the University's founder, public figure, enlightener, scientist, inventor, Vasyl Karazin.

He got an education at Kharkiv Private Boarding House and the Mining School in Saint Petersburg.

Vasyl Karazin began his active public activity by developing a number of ambitious transformation projects in Russia in the early reign of Alexander I. In particular, thanks to his initiative and with financial support of the local nobility and merchants, Kharkiv University was founded, which later became the center of cultural renaissance of Ukraine.

Vasyl Karazin is the author of valuable scientific works in different fields of science, particularly in food industry, meteorology, chemistry. He had original ideas as to the use of electricity and making artificial diamonds.

He entered science as a versatile scientist, author of a number of democratic concepts. He played a significant role in the dissemination of progressive ideas in Ukraine. Contemporaries and descendants compared his activities in Ukraine with those of Mikhail Lomonosov in Russia and Benjamin Franklin in America.

Among his achievements was the establishment of the first Ministry of Public Education in Europe, the creation of a laboratory and the first meteorological station in Kharkiv, the founding of the Philotechnical Society for spreading achievements of science and technology, and for developing industry in Ukraine. It was thanks to his support that Kharkiv University library was replenished with 3,000 books.
