Altai: History Of Belokurikha
June 12, 2017 18:27


Mineral springs in the area of Belokurikha were discovered at the very end of XIX century.

The “Tomsk Province Vedmosti” newspaper published the news about the opening of curative springs in the village of Novaya Belokurikha on July 7, 1867. This date is considered the beginning of the town’s history. A resort settlement was established on the place of the village in 1920s. Its golden age fell to 1960-1980s.

The “Metallurg” health resort built in 1961 became the first of many health resorts existing today. Now it is called “Edem”, is completely rebuilt and renovated, so its great age is not noticeable.

The status of a town was granted to Belokurikha only in 1982, after the recognition of the settlement as a resort of all-Union significance. Since 1992 the resort has acquired federal significance.
