A Neanderthal archaeological site exists near Brichmulla. In mediaeval times, Brichmulla was an important town, a fortress and mining location. Polymetallic and other deposits are known in the area, including arsenic, bismuth, lead and silver. In 18-19th centuries gold was extracted by washing through wool carpets [1]

Brichmulla is also known in Russian culture due to the song Brich-Mulla by Tatyana and Sergey Nikitin.
