Under the rule of Peter the Great (1682-1725) a group of Olonetski metallurgical works was established. These new facilities played important role in the Northern War (1700-1721) supplying Russian troops with cannons and munitions. One of those factories, called Petrozavodski, contributed to the appearance and growth of the settlement that later developed into the regional center Petrozavodsk city.
