Usolye (Russian: Усо́лье) is a town and the administrative center of Usolsky District of Perm Krai, Russia, located on the right bank of the Kama River, opposite of the city of Berezniki, 190 kilometers (120 mi) north of Perm. Population: 5,694 (2010 Census).[1]


It was founded in 1606 as a salt mining settlement of Novoye Usolye (Но́вое Усо́лье) and grew into a major salt mining center by the beginning of the 19th century.[citation needed] Until the end of the 18th century it was the main locality of the Stroganovs on the Kama River. In 1895, there were forty salt wells.

In 1923, Usolye became the administrative center of Verkhnekamsky District of Ural Oblast. Between 1932 and 1940, it was a part of the town of Berezniki. It was granted town status in 1940.[citation needed] Due to the construction of Kama Reservoir, a portion of the town was flooded.
