Cherepovets is the administrative center of the Cherepovets District and the largest city of the Vologda Region. The city stands on the Sheksna River, the left inflow of River Volga, at the mouth of the Yagorba River.

It is one of the few Russian district cities that surpass the administrative center of district (Vologda) as regards both population and industrial potential.

Its population makes 315 738 people (as of 2013).

Results of long-term supervision of the atmospheric air condition indicate that all the residential quarters of the city are subject to some extent of certain environmental footprint.

Heightened level of air pollution is more often found in the Industrial and Northern districts, since they are located closer to the industrial site of the iron and steel works. However, due to the winds, which are mainly northern ones, a considerable part of emissions settles in the Zasheksna District.

Architecture and Sights

From 1782 Cherepovets was built up according to a regular plan, which took into consideration two historically developed centers - the upland area of the former monastery and the floor space in Fedosyev.

The architectural and historical sights include the Ascension Cathedral (1752, reconstructed in the 19th century), and two-storeyed merchant stone houses and wooden mansions (early 19th century). Among the other constructions representing the old city there are trading malls (1890, 1909, 1911-13) and a theater building (1914-17).

Stepanovskoye Village located 5 km away from Cherepovets harbors the Resurrection Church (1735) and Anne and Joachim Church (early 19 century).
