History of Andreapol

In the 17th 18th centuries there was the Settlement of Machikhino (Andreyano-Polye Settlement from 1783) on the left bank of the Zapadnaya Dvina, the location of modern Andreapol. The right bank was occupied with the Village of Dubna known from 1489, the official date of Andreapol foundation. In 1928 Dubna became a part of Andreapol. In the 16th century Dubna was a frontier post on Russias border with Lithuania.

At the end of the 18th century Machikhino harboured the estate of Andrey Kushelev, who was the marshall of the nobility of the Ostashkovo District in the Tver Province.

The railway station of Andreapol was opened in 1907 and the station settlement grew up around it soon.

It became the urban township of Andreapol in 1938 and the town of Andreapol in 1967.
