The place is about 180 km as the crow flies north of the regional administration center Krasnoyarsk in the extreme southeast of the West Siberian lowlands . It is located on the Belaja , a left tributary of the Yenisei tributary Kem .
The village was founded in 1668 as one of the early Russian settlements in the region under the name Novomangaseiskaja sloboda (from Russian novo- for "new" and after the city of Mangaseja ). It was soon given the name Pirovshchina after the boyar's son Alexei Pirow, which over time changed into its current form.
Note: census data
The 04K-019 regional road leads to Pirovskoye and branches off from 04K-044 ( Jenisseiski trakt, formerly R409) about 60 km east of the village of Galanino on the Yenisei, south of the neighboring district center of Kazachinsky , which connects Krasnoyarsk with Yenisisk. Further north, the 04K-013 also runs to the Jenisseisk, just under 100 km away. This leads almost 20 km from Pirovskoye near the village of Troiza past the nearest railway station Pirovskaya of the branch line of the Trans-Siberian Railway from Achinsk to Lessosibirsk .
On the southern edge of the village there is a small airfield ( ICAO code UNIO ) that has been out of service since the 1990s.
