Dalnerechensk (Russian: Дальнере́ченск) is a town in Primorsky Krai, Russia. Population: 27,604 (2010 Census);[5] 30,092 (2002 Census);[10] 33,596 (1989 Census).[11]


It was originally known as Iman (Russian: Има́н; Chinese: 伊曼; pinyin: Yīmàn), but its Russian name was changed to Dalnerechensk (literally, a place at a remote river) in 1972[8] during a general campaign of cleansing the Chinese-derived toponyms in the Russian Far East. In Chinese, the name "Yiman" continues to be used.[citation needed]


The town is located on the left bank of the Bolshaya Ussurka River, near its mouth in the Ussuri River which here forms the border between Russia and China. The Chinese border is about 5 kilometers (3.1 mi) from the town center. The town is also situated on the Malinovka River, which joins with the Bolshaya Ussurska within the town limits.

One can see the spurs of the Sikhote-Alin ranges from any point of the town in clear weather. Salskaya Hill, an extinct volcano on the banks of the Bolshaya Ussurka, is also situated close to the town. Closeness of the taiga and the mineral springs, Lastochka and Shmakovka, numerous lakes and rivers, an abundance of sunny days, and a quiet measured life of the town make Dalnerechensk a local tourist attraction.


It was founded by the Cossacks in 1859 as the stanitsa of Grafskaya (Гра́фская).[citation needed] A railway station was built later in conjunction with the construction of the railway between Khabarovsk and Vladivostok; now the eastern section of the Trans-Siberian Railway.[citation needed] The railway station and settlement were later named after the Iman River. The settlement quickly became a timber center due to the large pine, fir, and spruce trees in the area, and was granted town status in 1917.[7]

The town was heavily damaged during the Russian Civil War. In May 1920, Sergey Lazo, Alexey Lutsky, and Vsevolod Sibirtsev—three Bolsheviks taken prisoner by Japanese intervention troops after the Nikolayevsk Incident—were murdered by the White Army Cossacks at the Muravyovo-Amurskaya railway station near the town. This event was greatly expanded by the Soviet propaganda of later years; allegedly the three were burned alive in the firebox of a steam locomotive. The village and station at Muravyovo were renamed Lazo, as were a number of other places and streets in the krai.

The majority of the monuments in the town are devoted to the events of the Russian Civil War of 1918-1922 and World War II.

There is a memorial in the town where frontier-guards who died in 1969 during the Sino-Soviet border conflict on Damansky Island are buried. Sino-Soviet tensions following this event led to a campaign of changing Chinese-derived place names in the region, with the town being renamed Dalnerechensk in 1972.[8]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Dalnerechensk serves as the administrative center of Dalnerechensky District,[2] even though it is not a part of it.[1] As an administrative division, it is, together with four rural localities, incorporated separately as Dalnerechensk Town Under Krai Jurisdiction—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[1] As a municipal division, Dalnerechensk Town Under Krai Jurisdiction is incorporated as Dalnerechensky Urban Okrug.[3]


The economy of the town is mainly represented by woodworking enterprises, such as JSC Les Export, JSC Primorsky DOK, JSC Dalnerechensky Lesokombinat, and others.


The town has a station on the Trans-Siberian Railway, it is also connected by road to Vladivostok.
