Chersky (Russian: Че́рский; Yakut: Черскэй) is an urban locality (an urban-type settlement) and the administrative center of Nizhnekolymsky District of the Sakha Republic, Russia, located on the Kolyma River, 1,920 kilometers (1,190 mi) east from Yakutsk, the capital of the republic. As of the 2010 Census, its population was 2,857.[3]

It was previously known as Nizhniye Kresty (until 1963).

History[edit]

It was founded as Nizhniye Kresty (Нижние Кресты) in 1931.[citation needed] In 1963, it was granted urban-type settlement status[2] and renamed Chersky, after Jan Czerski, a Polish geographer who organized several expeditions in the surrounding area in the 1880s.[citation needed] From the 1950s to the early 1990s, Chersky hosted logistical wing for drifting ice stations, which ran a supply route via the Zhokhov Island.

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, the urban-type settlement of Chersky[1] serves as the administrative center of Nizhnekolymsky District.[2] As an administrative division, it is, together with one rural locality (the selo of Petushki[11]), incorporated within Nizhnekolymsky District as the Settlement of Chersky.[2] As a municipal division, the Settlement of Chersky is incorporated within Nizhnekolymsky Municipal District as Chersky Urban Settlement.[4]
