Motherland is loved not for being large, but for being ours. Seneca Our Valiant City, Novokuznetsk

City of Novokuznetsk is one of the oldest cities in Siberia. It is called the southern capital of Kuzbass. The city is located on the left and right banks of the river Tom. The history of our city is closely connected with the history of joining and development of Siberia by the Russian state.

Foundation of Novokuznetsk

The city of Novokuznetsk was founded in the spring of 1618 as Kuznetsky Ostrog, which was on the hill on the right Bank of the Tom river just below where it makes a sharp turn North and falls into the river Kondoma.

Foundation of Novokuznetsk

A wooden fort, which appeared in 1618 on the Tom River, became one of the most important supporting posts of the Russian Empire beyond the Urals. Gradually the settlements began to grow around the fortress, and the post of resistance became the town, which since 1622 acquired the name of Kuznetsk.

This house is built in the XIX century. In the street where the house is located, there were merchants ' houses, but now they are gone. Only the house of the merchant Fonarev is preserved. This building is the most unique in our city. It is a hut built of wood and covered with art carving. At the moment it is in dire need of restoration.
