Primorye: Partizansk
November 20, 2017 00:05


Partizansk is located 40 km to the north of the port of Nakhodka and approximately 170 away from Vladivostok km (judging by a speedometer).

It is a typical Far Eastern city, extremely poor even by the standards of the Far East. This was not always this way: in the past Partizansk (its name had been Suchan until 1972) flourished.

Several coal mines worked within the city limits, the main enterprise of the city was an ore mining and processing plant. The city itself began with coal. In the early 1990s coal mining in the vicinity of Partizansk began to fade away. The equipment from the mines was sold for scrap metal. The last mine was closed in 2006, and Partizansk became (and even the local administration admits it) “a depressed territory devoid of city-forming enterprises”.

However, poverty does not seem oppressive and hopeless here. The city is quite clean, full of trees:  Partizansk looks rather like a park in some places. Mountains are located quite near: Livadiysky ridge in the west, Makarovsky ridge in the east. Lozovy ridge, full of caves, is located ten kilometers to the south-southwest; there is an ancient Jurchen settlement dated by the thirteenth-century on the western slope of this ridge.
