Primorye: The Town of Arsenyev
November 10, 2017 12:24


A small town in Primorye named in honor of the famous explorer of the Far East. It is famous for its ski trail considered to be one of the best in the region.

The town of Arsenyev was founded in 1902 as the village of Semenovka. The village, in turn, has its own history. In 1895, after a severe flood, 7 families from the settlement of Petropavlovka moved to the Khalaza River (now called Dachnaya River).

A little later the family of Semen Guriev settled near the settlement, his farm was called Semenovo. Upstream of Khalaza there was a town with the same name. In 1902 all three villages were united and named Semenovka.

In 1938 Semenovka was transformed into a working village. Later, in 1952 the settlement received the status of a town of regional subordination and a new name - Arsenyev, in honor of the famous explorer of the Far East, traveler and writer Vladimir Klavdievich Arsenyev (1872-1930).

Local lore specialists and historians have for a long time tried to figure it out whether V.K. Arsenyev visited Semenovka. And they found it out that he did, even twice, in 1902 and in 1912. The traveler stayed there to have rest and studied the locality. The symbol of the town is the Obzornaya bald mountain, one of the highest peaks of Primorsky Krai (878 meters above sea level). It has a good ski trail (considered to be one of the best trails in Primorye).
