Cultural tourism in Russia > Kirov region > Nolinsk


Nolinsk, the center of the Nolinsk area of the Kirov region, is located in the central part of the region, 137 km to the south of the regional center.

A Russian settlement at the site of modern Nolinsk was founded early in the 17th century. Nolinsk was the town of petty bourgeois, craftsmen and merchants. Political convicts were exiled to Nolinsk. F.E. Dzerzhinsky was one of such exiles.

The district of Nolinsk is a native land of a prominent statesman Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov (1890-1986), a people’s commissar and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Soviet Union.

A souvenir factory Vyatsky Suvenir is one of the local places of interest. A universally known Russian Matryoshka is manufactured here. Inlaid with straw, Matryoshka looks very friendly and smart. It is exported to many countries of the world.
