Zavodoukovsk

Zavodoukovsk

The city of Zavodoukovsk was founded in 1729. It is situated on a tributary of the Tobol, a river called Bolshoi Uk. The origin of the name Uk probably lies with the Tatar word «arrow». Through Zavodoukovsk passes a rail road built in early twentieth century. The population of the city numbers 25,1 thousand people, estimated on 2009. The main industrial enterprises are an engineering plant and a garment factory. The city has a hydropathyc establishment with thermal mineral springs. In the second half of the eighteenth century wine making was introduced in the south of the Tobol province.

During the Second World War Voronezh aircraft factory and Moscow air force school #1 and S. Komatov studied, were evacuated lo Zavodoukovsk.

Zavodoukovsk regional museum

The museum was opened in 1989. It displays exhibits devoted to history, peasant life, nature of the land, the city's role in the Great Patriotic War and to the people whose fortunes were connected with the city.

In 1941 the design department #31 of the Voronezh aircraft factory headed by an aircraft designer Alexander Moskalev was evacuated to Zavodoukovsk. Its biggest achievement - during the evacuation period was the design and construction of the first ever jet airplane - BI-1 fighter jet. In 1945 the design department moved to Leningrad where Moskalev brought some of his colleagues from Zavodoukovsk with whom he came to work well together.

Yulia Drunina and Zavodoukovsk

In 1942 a yesterday's school-girl and a future poetess Yulia Drunina left Zavodoukovsk for the front-line. In the waryears herfamily was evacuated here. Drunina's father taught history at a local school. After the war the poetess often came to Zavodoukovsk where her father is buried. The regional museum keeps scarce photographs and people's recollections of those meetings.
