Cherepovets, Russia

Loading Images...

Cherepovets is first mentioned in Russian Chronicles in 1362. Its name combines the two words for hill and village. A monastery was built on what is now considered the downtown area and existed for 400 years before being abolished by Catherine the Great in 1764.

In 1777 Cherepovets was given official status as a town. In 1810 it had a population of 901. It's only industry at that time was brick making. The town grew to a population of 3,300 by 1863 after the Mariinskaya Water System was built and serfdom abolished. The serfs, now free, moved to Cherepovets to seek work.

In the mid 1930's the Russian government began construction of a giant steel factory. This work was stopped during World War 2. Cherepovets was used as an evacuation zone with hospitals and war refugees from other Russian cities. It also housed German and Finnish prisoners of war. After the war, work was renewed on the steel mill which started producing iron in 1955 and steel in 1958. Population skyrocketed as workers were moved to Cherepovets from other regions.

In 1978 the third largest suspension bridge of its type (cable-stayed) was built over the Sheksna River.

Cherepovets is currently the most populous city in the Vologda region.
