Obluchye is a city (from 1938) in Russia, the administrative center of Obluchensky District of the Jewish Autonomous Region.

The population of Obluchye makes 10.5 thousand people (as of 2010).

Thanks to being shielded by mountains from the north, the area has a very favorable microclimate.

The city is located at the western bottom of the mountain ridge Lesser Khingan, on Khingan River (the left inflow of Amur River), 159 km to the West of Birobidzhan.

History of Obluchye:

Builders of the Amur railroad founded Obluchye in 1911 under the name of Saloli (derived from the nearby rivers Bolshaya and Malaya Saloli). Within 4 years they constructed the 200-meter Obluchye Tunnel and the railway station Obluchye. The year 1915 saw the connection of the first and second sites of the Amur railroad, which completed its construction. At the same time Obluchye got its present-day name. Obluchye got the status of an urban settlement in 1928, and the status of a city in 1938.
