Things to do: museums
Okha is a town and the administrative center of Okhinsky District of Sakhalin Oblast, Russia, located on the east coast of the far north of the Sakhalin Island, approximately 850km north of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, near the shoreline of the Sea of Okhotsk. Population:HistoryIt was founded shortly after the discovery of petroleum in the area in 1880, initially under the name Okhe. The name is derived from an Ainu word meaning Bad Water. Industrial exploitation of the petroleum reserves began in 1923, during the Japanese occupation of Sakhalin from 1920-1925. Town status was granted to it in 1938.The town suffered significant damage in an earthquake on May 28, 1995, and was used as pivotal base for rescuers deployed to Neftegorsk, pulverized by the quake. A number of survivors of Neftegorsk was later transferred to Okha. Another smaller earthquake hit the town on May 10, 2005, but there were no fatalities or significant damage.Administrative and municipal statusWithin the framework of administrative divisions, Okha serves as the administrative center of Okhinsky District and is subordinated to it. As a municipal division, the town of Okha and ten rural localities of Okhinsky District are incorporated as Okhinsky Urban Okrug.
