History[edit]

Central Market Place, 1890s

The first record of Shuya is dated by 1393.[citation needed] Since 1403, the area was held by a branch of the House of Suzdal, which got their name "Shuysky" after the town. In 1539, the town was sacked by Safa Giray of Kazan. In 1566, it was taken by Ivan the Terrible as his personal property into Oprichnina. In 1722, the town was visited by Peter the Great, who launched textile manufacturing there. Town status was granted to it in 1778.[citation needed] By the 19th century, Shuya was developed into a major flax-processing center, although it has been since superseded in importance by the neighboring town of Ivanovo.

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Shuya serves as the administrative center of Shuysky District,[1] even though it is not a part of it.[2] As an administrative division, it is incorporated separately as the Town of Shuya—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[2] As a municipal division, the Town of Shuya is incorporated as Shuya Urban Okrug.[3]

Architecture[edit]

Nikolo-Shartomsky Abbey

Nikolo-Shartomsky Abbey, situated 12 kilometers (7.5 mi) from Shuya, has one of the largest monastic communities in Russia. The cloister was first mentioned in 1425. It has a cathedral from 1652 and a refectory from 1678. The belltower of the Resurrection Cathedral, is the tallest freestanding bell tower in the world.

Notable people[edit]

Notable people from Shuya include peasant Feodor Vassilyev, whose first wife still holds the world record for most children ever born (sixty-nine). Mikhail Frunze led textile workers in the town in a strike action during the Revolution of 1905.
