Primorye: Artyom
November 9, 2017 01:24


There are no ancient monuments in the city, but there is a Palace of Culture which is compared with the Concert Hall named after Tchaikovsky. Artyom was founded in 1924 as a miner’s settlement. Its history started with the discovery of deposits of brown coal in Southern Primorye and the construction of the Zybunny mine.

The status of a city was given to Artyom in 1938. This is the fourth largest city (after Vladivostok, Nakhodka and Ussuriysk) of Primorsky Krai. The name was given to Artyom after the pseudonym of the Soviet party and state leader F.A. Sergeyev (1883-1921).

The son of the revolutionary Artyom was the adopted son of Stalin. He was one of the pioneers of local coal mines. In the early 1990s many coal mines closed. Now the city has operating construction enterprises, metal works, a tire repair factory, piano factories, carpet-producing, knitting, and furniture-producing industries, food industry enterprises.

Artyom SDPP is located nearby; it supplies electricity to the Southern Primorye. The products of the Artyom Porcelain Factory are famous in the whole region, and the tea set “Golden Leaves” produced by the factory was even demonstrated at the World Exhibition in Montreal. Sometimes Artyom is called the second literary capital of Primorye: because of the interesting writers and poets who live there.
