Nikolskoye (Russian: Нико́льское, Finnish: Lomkka) is a town in Tosnensky District of Leningrad Oblast, Russia, located on the Tosna River 40 kilometers (25 mi) southeast of the center of St. Petersburg. Population: 19,280 (2010 Census);[3] 17,309 (2002 Census);[8] 17,215 (1989 Census).[9]


It was founded in 1710, when Peter the Great resettled here a number of masons from Central Russia to serve newly founded St. Petersburg and surroundings.[2] There were quarries around Nikolskoye and the settlement supplied stone, brick, and timber to St. Petersburg. The name was given because the settlers brought an icon of Saint Nicholas and built a church to host the icon.[2]

In the course of the administrative reform carried out in 1708 by Peter the Great, the area was included into Ingermanland Governorate (known since 1710 as St. Petersburg Governorate).[citation needed] In 1727, it became a part of Sankt-Peterburgsky Uyezd.[citation needed]

In 1876, colonel Boris Vinner bought a piece of land from the peasants of the selo of Nikolskoye and in 1877 he opened there a privately owned gunpowder works, known as Yekaterininsky Zavod. Around the same time, a glass factory was opened. It belonged to merchant Maximilian Frank and was eventually destroyed during World War II. Quarries around Nikolskoye stopped operating in the 1920s.[2]

Sankt-Peterburgsky Uyezd was renamed Petrogradsky in 1914[citation needed] and then Leningradsky in January 1924.[10] On August 1, 1927, the uyezds were abolished and Kolpinsky District, with the administrative center in the town of Kolpino, was established.[11] The governorates were also abolished and the district became a part of Leningrad Okrug of Leningrad Oblast.[11] Nikolskoye became a part of Kolpinsky District.[11] On August 15, 1930, the okrugs were abolished as well and the districts were directly subordinated to the oblast.[12] On August 19, 1930, the district was abolished.[11] Nikolskoye became a part of newly established Tosnensky District.[13]

Between September 1941 and January 1944, during World War II, Tosnensky District was occupied by German troops.[13] Nikolskoye was lying basically at the front line during the Siege of Leningrad, and was greatly damaged.[2]

Nikolskoye was granted urban-type settlement status on June 9, 1958[13] and town status on August 6, 1990.[2]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, it is, together with three rural localities, incorporated within Tosnensky District as Nikolskoye Settlement Municipal Formation.[1] As a municipal division, Nikolskoye Settlement Municipal Formation is incorporated within Tosnensky Municipal District as Nikolskoye Urban Settlement.[5]



In Nikolskoye, there are several factories producing materials for construction.[14]


The railway in Nikolskoye is not used for passenger traffic. The closest railway stations are Ivanovskaya on the line connecting St. Petersburg and Mga, Popovka and Sablino on the line connecting St. Petersburg and Moscow, and Pustynka on the line connecting Mga and Gatchina. All these stations are served by suburban trains.

Nikolskoye is connected by roads with Otradnoye, Ulyanovka, and Krasny Bor. Via Ulyanovka, it has access to the M10 Highway, which connects St. Petersburg and Moscow.
