Sovetskaya Street in Yegorievsk

Egoryevsk ( Russian Егорьевск ) is a city and district center in Russia in the Moscow Oblast . It has 70,081 inhabitants (as of October 14, 2010) and is a good 100 km south-east of Moscow .


Alexander Nevsky Church in Yegorievsk

The place was first mentioned in 1462 as a village called Vysokoye . In the 16th century a church was built here that was named after St. George . The current name of the city comes from Yegor , one of the Russian variants of the name Georg. In the 17th and 18th centuries, thanks to its favorable position for trade relations between Moscow and the Ryazan region and between Kolomna and Vladimir , the place gained importance as a fairground . In 1778 it was granted city status and was initially called Yegoryev , and later Yegoryevsk .

After receiving city rights, Yegoryevsk continued to grow in the 19th century. Textile factories and other manufacturers, a water pipe, schools and many new church buildings were built here for the first time. At that time, Yegoryevsk was also considered an important center of the Old Orthodox of the Moscow area, which is still reminiscent of the Church of St. George from 1882.
