History Of Votkinsk
October 18, 2016 15:41


In 1757, in the place where modern Votkinsk is now, a workers’ settlement was established for those who were employed for the construction of Votkinsk ironworks. Earl Shuvalov supervised the construction site. The official date of foundation of the city is considered to be 1759, when the factory started operating. Votkinsk received the city status in 1935.

In Votkinsk for more than seventy years, ships were built that were walking along the Baltic, White, Black, Caspian and Aral seas, as well as along the Kama, Volga, Dnieper, Neva, Ladoga, the rivers of Siberia and of the Far East. Their production began when lieutenant colonel Chaykovskiy was a new mining chief of the Kama-Votkinsk District, the father of the future composer. Until now, the coast of Tobol, Irtysh, Ob, Amur River, Ishim River and many other rivers connect the bridges erected by citizens of Votkinsk in the XIX century.

The hydro-electric station is 30 km from Votkinsk on the Kama that is one of the main suppliers of electricity in the Urals. The anchor with a laurel wreath instead of a ring is painted in the center of city arms. And thanks to anchor production the city became famous all over Russia. The rope placed over the anchor, was put on the coat of arms as a memory of the anchor that was forged with the participation of the future Emperor Alexander II. Clarion was painted here that reminds of the birth of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in the town, and the tip of the spear, symbolizing the production of missiles.
