The town is located 9 kilometers (5.6 mi) from the urban-type settlement of Plesetsk and is connected to it by a road and a railway.

The area is elongated from the east to the west and is approximately 50 kilometers (31 mi) long and 20 kilometers (12 mi) wide. The town proper is located in the extreme southwestern end of the area.
