History of Krasnoslobodsk

It was known as Krasnaya Sloboda (i.e. the Red Settlement) from 1571 and fortified the system of defending Moscow State from the Tatars and Nogais. In the middle of the 17th century the settlement lost its defensive value but kept growing; by the late 17th century the Cossacks settled there.

Krasnaya Sloboda had 700 yards and the population of 3500 people in 1670.

It became a town in 1706 and was named Krasnoslobodsk in 1780. Ironworks and distilleries were constructed by the Milyakovs merchants in the 18th century. Krasnoslobodsk acquired trade and distributive functions in the 1st half of the 19th century.
