Nikolayevsk-on-Amur

From Academic Kids

(Redirected from Nikolayevsk-na-Amure)

Nikolayevsk-on-Amur (Russian: Никола́евск-на-Аму́ре, often transliterated directly as Nikolayevsk-na-Amure) (2002 population—28,492) is a town in Russia and the administrative center of Nikolayevsky District, Khabarovsk Krai. The town is located 80 km from the place where Amur River inflows into the Amur estuary, 977 km from Khabarovsk, and 582 km from the Komsomolsk-on-Amur railway station.

The area of the town was originally a part of imperial China and consisted of the town of Miaojie (Chinese: 庙街). After China lost the Second Opium War, the area was ceded to Russia under the 1858 Treaty of Aigun and 1860 Beijing Treaty.

Nikolayevsky Post was founded by Gennady Nevelskoy on August 13, 1850. It was granted a town status and renamed Nikolayevsk-on-Amur in 1856, when Primorskaya Oblast was established. At that time, Nikolayevsk-on-Amur was the administrative center of Primorskaya Oblast (until 1880) and the largest port in the Russian Far East.
