Primorye: Dalnerechensk
November 20, 2017 00:14


Dalnerechensk is the oldest and northernmost town of Primorye, the administrative centre of Dalnerechensky district, located near the border with China.

Cossacks founded the village of Grafskaya on this place in 1859, and in 1917 the settlement received the status of a town: it had been called Iman until 1972. The town near Amur was not poor, it traded in timber and seafood, developed industry. During Soviet rule, a wood processing plant with a furniture factory and a meat processing plant were built there. Dalnerechensk is a border town, it participated in the Soviet-Chinese armed conflict on the Damansky Island.

Several monuments to the soldiers who died defending the state border have been erected in the town: the Memorial Complex to the Heroes-border Guards who were killed on March 2, 1969 on the Damansky Island, the Memorial of Glory, etc. Three rivers: Ussuri, Bolshaya Ussurka and Malinovka merge just within the town limits. The spurs of Sikhote-Alin can be seen on the horizon. Dalnerechensk failed to avoid the crisis of the 1990s: the wood processing plant disintegrated. Nevertheless, the town is still clean and tidy, its residents live a steady, quiet life.
