Long harsh winters with stable snow cover (from late October to early April) and hot summers with little rainfall

History Pavlodar

In the IX – XII centuries, not far from the place of existence of modern Pavlodar, the city of Imakia (in some sources of Kimakia) was located - the disappeared medieval Turkic city of Kimaks, the capital of Kimak kaganate. Russian immigrants arrived in the territory of Priyrtysh in the XVI century, for the extraction of salt in Yamysh Lake. At the beginning of the XVIII century, by decree of Peter the Great, fortresses began to be built on the right bank of the Irtysh, such as Zhelezinsky, Semipalatinsk, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Yamyshevskaya. And among which was the Koryakovsky outpost, on the site of which is the city of Pavlodar. Near the outpost were two salt lakes. Arriving at the end of the nineteenth century and at the beginning of the twentieth century, migrant peasants were engaged in agriculture, they plowed the land, grew vegetables, gardens, and raised bread. Local Kazakhs, who from ancient times roamed on these lands with their cattle, adopted their experience. According to the surviving documents, the outpost had the shape of a square of 50 by 50 meters, was surrounded by a high log picket fence, in the corners had bastions with artillery batteries. Barracks were located in the inside, and stables and a bathhouse were outside. The entire garrison of the outpost consisted of 48 people. The outpost was built in order to consolidate on new lands and protect the Cossacks from the raids of the Dzungars.

How to visit Pavlodar city.

During the second half of the 18th century, the Irtysh fortification lost its strategic military significance due to the fact that the colonization of Kazakhstan advanced further south. Fortresses and outposts became ordinary villages and villages into which the population was brought from the central part of the empire. Koryakovsky outpost is becoming one of the centers of salt production in Siberia. Finally, on April 4, 1861, the Koryakovskaya village received the status of “a contingent city with the name Pavlodar, in honor of the newborn Grand Duke Pavel Alexandrovich”.

Statistics noted that in 1904 there were 33 streets and an alley in the city.

Virgin development Pavlodar city.

The city received its “second wind” during the development of virgin lands. The beginning of a new powerful construction was connected with the decision to build a combine and aluminum plants here. In early January 1955, the first mechanized columns of builders began to arrive in Pavlodar. For management services and employees with families, shield houses were built, new stores and dining rooms, and household outlets were opened. So, on the northern outskirts of the city grew a temporary town, which became known as Administrative. Along with the construction of industrial facilities, construction of housing for future workers' factories began. In May 1955, in a festive atmosphere, the excavator removed the first bucket from the foundation pit of the future five-story building at number one on ul. May 1st. Since 1956, the population of Pavlodar began to grow rapidly. Experienced specialists came from all over the USSR, young, who had just graduated from high schools, came by distribution; because of this, the percentage of ethnic Kazakh population fell to 9 percent, and Kazakh was taught only in two schools. In order to somehow solve the problem of an acute shortage of housing for skilled professionals who have arrived, the intensive construction of a private village in the eastern part of the city, “Second Pavlodar”, begins.
