Slavyansk-na-Kubani (Russian: Славя́нск-на-Куба́ни) is a town in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located in the Kuban River delta. Population: 63,842 (2010 Census);[3] 64,136 (2002 Census);[5] 57,790 (1989 Census);[6] 56,000 (1975).

History[edit]

Slavyansk originated in the Middle Ages as Copa or Coparia, a Genoese trade outpost controlled by the Ghisolfi family. After the fall of the Genoese power in the Pontic region, the site was abandoned until 1747 when the Crimean Khanate erected a small fort, known in Russian sources as Kopyl.

After the conquest of the Taman Peninsula by the Russian Empire, the Tatar fort gave way to the Cossack stanitsa of Kopylskaya. In 1865, it was renamed after the Slavyansky regiment that had been quartered there under Catherine the Great. In 1958, it was incorporated as the town of Slavyansk-na-Kubani (so called in order to distinguish it from the eponymous city in Ukraine).[citation needed]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Slavyansk-na-Kubani serves as the administrative center of Slavyansky District, even though it is not a part of it.[1] As an administrative division, it is incorporated separately as the Town of Slavyansk-na-Kubani—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[1] As a municipal division, the Town of Slavyansk-na-Kubani is incorporated within Slavyansky Municipal District as Slavyanskoye Urban Settlement.[2]

Miscellaneous[edit]

Modern Slavyansk is a small and rather run-down resort with a struggling oil industry. The Assumption Cathedral (1904–1907) is the sole building of historical interest.
