Yegoryevsk (Russian: Его́рьевск) is a town and the administrative center of Yegoryevsk Urban Settlement in Moscow Oblast, Russia, located on the right bank of the Guslitsa River 114 kilometers (71 mi) southeast of Moscow.

Toponymy[edit]

Yegoryevsk was named honor of St. Egory, that is Saint George.

History[edit]

It has been known since 1462 as the village of Vysokoye (Высо́кое). Town status was granted to it in 1778.[citation needed] The newborn town was quite small. There were only 280 males and 295 females. These were mostly merchants and burgesses (русск. меща́не).

Yegoryevsk was famous for its annual fairs, where bread was mainly sold. In the 19th century, Yegoryevsk became the center of the textile industry. Since 1845, the Khludov brothers cotton factory has been operating. It has survived to this day and its watches are one of the main sights of the town. Yegoryevsk also owed his development to the mayor in 1872−1901 N. M. Bardygin. According to his order, the Moscow architect I.T. Baryutin built the Egoryevsk Mechanical and Electrical Engineering School named after Tsarevich Alexei, the Holy Trinity Mariinsky Convent was rebuilt.

Also, Egorievsk is an important center of Old Believers.
