Description of Zheleznogorsk

Zheleznodorsk - a city (since 1962) in the north-west of the Kursk region of Russia, the administrative center of the Zheleznogorsk district (since 1965). It is not part of the district, being a city of regional importance, forming a municipal entity Zheleznogorsk city with the status of a city district.

 

Zheleznogorsk was founded in 1957 as a working village Oktyabrsky, in connection with the development of the Mikhailovsky iron ore deposit of the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly. A large buckwheat field, located near the village of Chernyakovo, was chosen as the site for the construction of the city. On October 2, 1957, construction of the prefabricated houses of the settlement along the current Oktyabrskaya street began. By November 7, the first two two-apartment residential buildings were commissioned. On June 24, 1958, on the basis of the appeal of builders and miners, by decision No. 290 of the Kursk Regional Council of Workers' Deputies, the village of Oktyabrsky was renamed Zheleznogorsk. On September 28, 1961, the village of Chernyakovo, the settlements of Yermolaevsky and Chernyakovsky Gorki of the Razvetievsky Village Council were included in the line of the working settlement of Zheleznogorsk. In 1962, the village was given the status of a city, at that time it was inhabited by 16.5 thousand people.
