Population:HistoryIt was founded as an ostrog by the Cossacks led by Pyotr Beketov in 1636, sited on the left bank of the Lena opposite the mouth of the Olyokma River. The outpost was later moved a few kilometers upstream, to a location less prone to flooding in spring.As the junction for river traffic on the Lena and Olyokma, the settlement was the base for Russian expeditions further east and eventually became a trade center on the river route to Yakutsk. Town status was granted to it in 1783.Decembrists Nikolay Chishov and Andrey Andreyev were exiled here.During World War II, an airfield was built here for the Alaska-Siberian (ALSIB) air route used to ferry American Lend-Lease aircraft to the Eastern Front.Use our Russia itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Olekminsk and any other destinations in Russia that take your fancy.
