History[edit]

Construction on a section of the Trans-Siberian Railway connecting Chita and Vladivostok began in 1898, starting at each end and meeting halfway. The project produced a large influx of new settlers and in 1911 a village was founded around the Obluchye railway station, the name of which roughly means the route passing around as the railway at this point travels through a large curve around the mountains.[citation needed]

The railway was completed in October 1916.[6]

Town status was granted to Obluchye in 1938.[citation needed]

Economy[edit]

The gold mining company Zoloto Zutary is based in the town. Other employers include the railway workshops connected to the town's station on the Trans-Siberian Railway.
