Pischanka ( Russian Пижа́нка ) is an urban-type settlement in Kirov Oblast in Russia with 3875 inhabitants (as of October 14, 2010).


The place is just 150 km as the crow flies south-southwest of the Kirow Oblast Administrative Center on the eponymous river Pischanka, which flows over the Isch to the Pischma .

Pischanka is the administrative center of the Rajons Pischanski and seat of the municipality Pischankskoje gorodskoje posselenije. In addition to the settlement, the municipality includes 21 villages, of which only three have more than 100 inhabitants (as of October 14, 2010): Bolshoi Jasnur (5 km east), Kaschnur (7 km south-east) and Mari-Oschajewo (5 km south-west).


The place goes back to an inn built in the 17th century on the trade route from Jaransk to Kukarka (today Sovetsk ). In 1693 a church was built there for the surrounding settlements, around which a village that was named after the river grew. As a result, it belonged to the Ujesd Jaransk of the Vyatka Governorate and in 1873 became the seat of a Volost .

On June 10, 1929, the Volost was expanded to a raion of the same name, based in Pischanka. In 1969 the place received the status of an urban-type settlement.
