History of Severodvinsk

Severodvinsk was founded in 1936 as the shipbuilders settlement Sudostra. In 1938 it was transformed into the town of Molotovsk (named after the Soviet party leader and statesman V. M. Molotov (1890-1986)).

During the Great Patriotic War of 1941-45 it was one of the countrys seaports receiving cargoes of the allied countries on the lend-lease base.

In 1957 it was renamed into Severodvinsk according to its location in the delta of Northern Dvina.


Inside the town there have remained stone constructions of St. Nicolas Karelian Monastery for the first time recorded in the Dvina Chronicle in 1419; it served as an important military fortress of the Moscow State by the White Sea. In 1553-1584 it was the first Russian trading port. The gateway wooden tower of now extinct fortifications (1691-92) was transported to Moscow in 1932 and established in the Kolomna memorial estate.
