Korablino is a Russian town (since 1965), the administrative center of the Korablino District of the Ryazan Region.

It is located near River Pronya (influx of Oka), at the 89 km distance from Ryazan.

Korablino takes the overall area of 12 sq km and has the population of 11 554 people (as of 2014).

History of Korablino

According to folk beliefs, the village arose on the place of oak groves that served as wood for shipbuilding by Peter the First on the Don River, and hence is the name of Korablino (derived from the Russian word korabl, i.e.

ship).

Actually the first owners of the settlement were the Korobyins boyars. Their ancestor the Tatar prince Kitchi Bei shifted from the horde to serving the Ryazan prince Fyodor Olgovich in the 15th century. The son of Kichi Bey was nicknamed Korobya, i.e. a coffer for his avarice and started the Korobyins family.

The settlement was named Korabyino in the 16th and 17th centuries and turns into Korablino in the late 18th century.

In 1859 Korablino had 51 yards with 530 people living there.

After the start of the Ryazan and Kozlovsk railroad in 1866 the settlement became a considerable bread trading and warehouse point of the province.

In 1929 Korablino had the population of about 1 thousand people, and a distillery and tobacco factory working in the settlement.

The 1950th saw the building of several coal mines (which turned to be low-profitable) and a silk fabrics factory.

Korablino got the town status in 1965.

The town has the Intercession Church built in the 19th century.

There is the wooden St. Nicholas Church (1880) in the village of Filatovo and the Church of Our Lady of Tikhvin (1805) in the Village of Pekhlets near Korablino.
