History of Klintsy

The future town was founded by fugitive peasants Old Believers in 1707. The village was named after the surname of one of those peasants.

In 1782 the large village turned into a suburb, and after 143 years more became a town.

During the war of 1941-1945 Klintsy was for two years occupied by German armies. The city was released by the Soviet army in September 1943.

During the Soviet period textile industry was well-developed in the town, but the tumultuous 1990s brought about collapse. Today it is a quiet provincial small town.

The town is well-known for its cranes. Only two towns in Russia produce such cranes on lorry-loads and the crane arrow bears the inscription Klintsy or Galich.
