History of Nikolsk

Nikolsk appeared in the 15th century as a pier on the River Yug as Nikolsky Churchyard (named after the church).

At that time Yug river was a trading route connecting the basin of Northern Dvina with Vetluga and Volga rivers. In 1780 during Ekaterina's provincial reform the Nikolsky Village was transformed into the chief town of the district. The main occupations of the town dwellers in the 19th-early 20th included flax cultivation, dairy and meat cattle breeding and hunting.


The places of interest in Nikolsk include Nikolsk Historical and Memorial Museum of Alexander Yashin, Sretensky Cathedral (late 18th early 20th centuries), the Kazan Church (late 19th century), buildings of the former religious school (1822) and Zemstvo management (middle of the 19th century). On the outskirts of the town one can find a nature sanctuary - Yashkin pine forest.
