History of Dzerzhinsk

At the confluence of Chernaya River into Oka there was Chernorechye District with the center in the Chernoe Settlement. This settlement and the neighboring village of Rastyapino (before 1904 it was Chernoye town) were united into Rastyapino working settlement.

The working settlement developed due to construction of chemical companies. From 1929 it was named Dzerzhinsk in honor of the Soviet party and statesman F.E. Dzerzhinsky (1877-1926). It became a town in 1930.

In 1989 intracity areas were abolished.
