Maykop (Russian: Майкоп; IPA: [mɐjˈkop]; Adyghe: Мыекъуапэ [məjaqʷaːpa], Myequape, literally The valley of apple trees[8]) is the capital city of the Republic of Adygea, Russia, located on the right bank of the Belaya River (a tributary of the Kuban). It borders Maykopsky District, from which it is administratively and municipally separate, in the east and south; Giaginsky District in the north, and Belorechensky District of Krasnodar Krai in the west. Population: 144,249 (2010 Census);[4] 156,931 (2002 Census);[9] 148,608 (1989 Census).[10]

History[edit]

The early Bronze Age Maykop culture has been named after the city after the discovery of a royal burial site there in 1897.[citation needed]

In 1911, oil deposits were discovered in the vicinity of Maykop.[citation needed]

In 1936, Maykop and the surrounding region was merged with Adyghe Autonomous Oblast, and became the administrative center of the autonomy. Maykop was occupied by the Wehrmacht on August 9, 1942 without a fight as a result of Brandenburger commando operation. In January 1943, it was liberated by the Transcaucasian Front of the Red Army.

Since 1991, Maykop has been the capital of the Republic of Adygea in the Russian Federation.

Economy[edit]

The discovery of extensive underground oil reserves has made Maykop a major centre for oil extraction for the Soviet Union and, subsequently, Russia. Other economically important sectors are food processing and the timber industry.
