The first description of Syktyvkar (former Ust-Sysolsk) was found in the chronicles of 1586. At that time there was a small church and churchyard there. In the 18th century Ust-Sysolsk developed into a big commercial and political center of the Komi Republic. Due to its geographical location it traded with St. Petersburg, Moscow, Siberia and some other parts of Russia.

By the decree of Catherine II of 1780 Ust-Sysolsk was transformed into the city and was incorporated into the Vologda province.
