History of Nelidovo

It was founded as the settlement at the Nelidovo station on the railroad Moscow - Vindava (Riga) near the village of Iotkino (known since 1701) in 1900. The basic purpose of the station was to serve the district town Bely located 50 km to the south. The station was named after the Nelidovs noblemen, who donated part of their lands for the railroad construction.

Nelidovo became an urban township in 1938.

Nelidovo was occupied by fascist troops on October 8, 1941 and released by the Soviet army on January 25, 1942. The township was destroyed during the battles and reconstructed in the first post-war years.

In 1944-57 was a part of the Velikiye Luki Region. Nelidovo became a town in 1949.
