Serow ( Russian Серов ) is a city in Russia with around 99,373 inhabitants (as of October 14, 2010). It is located in Sverdlovsk Oblast on the eastern edge of the Urals , just under 350 kilometers north of the oblast capital, Yekaterinburg .

The development of today's Serow began in September 1893, when the construction of an iron foundry and track construction was planned nearby. For this purpose, a workers' settlement was initially built on the site of today's city. It was initially called Nadeschdinsk , named after the large landowner Nadeschda Polowzowa, who owned the site of the iron foundry. With the foundry operating, the population of the settlement increased increasingly. But Nadeschdinsk only received city status in 1926.

In the next decade, the city was renamed three times. First, in 1934, Nadeschdinsk became Kabakovsk , named after the politician Ivan Kabakov . When he was convicted in the course of the Stalinist purges in 1937 , the city was initially given back its old name Nadeschdinsk. Soon after, namely on June 7, 1939, the city was renamed Serow in honor of the fatally injured pilot Anatoly Serov , who was born and lived here.

Today the city is considered an important industrial city in the region. Metal processing still dominates economic life here; the company that emerged from the old iron foundry also bears the name of the pilot Anatoli Serow. There are also several food and wood processing plants in the city and the surrounding area.
