History[edit]

Makaryev Monastery

In the Russian Empire, the territory of what today is Lyskovsky District was mostly within Makaryevsky Uyezd of Nizhny Novgorod Governorate. The seat of the uyezd was in the town of Makaryev (today's settlement of Makaryevo) on the northern bank of the Volga River, next to the ancient Makaryev Monastery. Until the fire of 1816, Makaryev was home to the annual Makaryev Fair. The administrative offices of the uyezd, however, were located in the village of Lyskovo, which, being located on the southern bank of the Volga, was conveniently served by the Kazan Post Road.

The modern district was established in 1929.[1]

Economy[edit]

Lyskovo brewery and vegetable canning plant are well known in the region.
