Ivanovo is a historic medieval town that makes
part of the Golden Ring of Russia. It is the largest city and
capital of Ivanovo Oblast. On the turn of 20th century Ivanovo
became an important site for textile production. Numerous factories
invited thousands of women here. Thus Ivanovo got an official name
of "city of brides".
Ivanovo is a relatively young city, founded in 1871. From the
beginning of the 20th century it became an important center of the
textile industry. One of the centers of the revolutionary movement,
the "City of the First Council", is the center of a large Industrial
region, which included the territories of modern Vladimir and
Yaroslavl regions. At the end of the 20th century, the city fell
into decay, including in connection with the decline of textile
production. Now it's just a beautiful, original city in its own way.
