Novomoskovsk Central Square

The city originated in the 18th century as the family manor of Counts Bobrinsky, who industrialized it towards the end of the 19th century. In the Soviet period, the town continued to develop as a coal (lignite) mining center. During World War II, Novomoskovsk, as Stalinogorsk, was occupied by the German Army from 22 November 1941 to 11 December 1941. The city was awarded the Order of the Red Banner of Labor on January 14, 1971.
