Netischyn (Ukrainian Нетішин ; Russian Нетешин / Neteschin , Polish Nityszyn ) is a city in Ukraine . The city is located about 104 kilometers south of the Oblast capital Khmelnyzkyj on the Horyn River .
The place was mentioned in writing for the first time in 1542 and remained a small village until the Khmelnytskyi nuclear power plant was built in the 1980s. Between 1920 and 1939/45 it was the border town between the Soviet Union and Poland ; the Kowel – Kosjatyn railway has been running north of the town since the end of the 19th century. The nuclear power plant was built about 3 kilometers south of the village on the banks of the Horyn river and a new settlement was built southeast of the old village center for its construction and operation. In 1984 the village was granted city status.
