Nadym is a town in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Russia, located on the Nadym River. Population:EtymologyThere are three several translations from the Nenets language:1) «nyadey ya» - mossy place2) «ngede ya» - dry hill,with lots of grass3) «nyada yam» - land of the Nyadong familyHistoryThe first mention of the city's name appears at the end of the 16th century. The name "Nadym" appears on Russian maps from the end of the 17th century, and the river Nadym was noted in published form at the turn of the 17th and 18th Centuries in the "Drawing Book of Siberia" by Russian geographer, cartographer and topographer, Semyon Remezov and sons, composed in 1699 — 1701. On the map of Tobolsk province of 1802, Nadym was already marked as having significant population. Today it's located 32 kilometers from the mouth of the river Nadym, referred to as Nadym mound.In 1929, a reindeer farm called "Nadym" was founded on the right bank of the river Nadym. However, in 1934 the farm was disbanded and turned into a factory.In the fall of 1967, it was chosen as the reference framework for the development of a regional gas bearing deposit. Surrounded by numerous lakes, the village situated on an elevated dry place was chosen for a runway for the airline industry. Relatively small, 12 kilometers away from the river Nadym, for which it was named, by the 1950s - 1960s, the village began to be called "New Nadym".In parallel to its accelerated pace of development, the gas company created Medvezhye gas field, with the intention of becoming a social and cultural center of the Tyumen North. In August 1971, Nadym held a groundbreaking ceremony for its first major building and on March 9, 1972 by decree of the Soviet First Secretary the industrial community Nadym was incorporated within the Nadymsky Municipal District as Nadym Urban Settlement.
