Serving as the administrative center of Kakhovka Raion, it is administratively incorporated as a city of oblast significance and does not belong to the raion. Population:It is home to the KZEZO as well as the Tavria Games festival.There is a Swedish consulate in Kakhovka.HistoryIn 1492 Meñli I Giray established a fortress near the site of today's Kakhovka called İslâm Kermen (later also called Shagin-Girei, presumably after Şahin Giray). It was frequently attacked by Cossacks and was finally destroyed by them under the leadership of Ivan Mazepa in 1695. In 1791 the Russian Colonel D.M. Kulikovsky founded the trade town of Kakhovka. Kakhovka was situated in the Tauria district. In 1848 the town obtained city rights. In the 1870s–90s the town was renowned for having a huge population of low-income contractors (batraki). By a Russian economist (N.J. Tjezjakov) time-by-time 20-40.000 contractor gathered in the city, 80% of them males.In December 1918, by the decision of the administration of the Dnipro povit (uyezd), Kakhovka was declared a city. In August 1920, during the final push in the Russian Civil War to drive the Whites under Wrangel out of the Crimea, Ieronim Uborevich established a bridgehead at Kakhovka, which became the site of fierce battles, "probably the closest the Civil War came to world war trench fighting."
