Kesova Gora

Kesova Gora

Kesova Gora ( _ru. Ке́сова Гора́) is an urban-type settlement in Tver Oblast, Russia, located 32 kilometers from Kashin and 50 kilometers from Bezhetsk. Population: 3,904 (2006 est.); 4,076 (2002 Census); 4,208 (1989 Census). The population drop was possibly occurring due to the vast emigration to larger nearby towns such as Kashin and Kalyazin, or because of the decreasing birth rate.

Kesova Gora is the administrative center of Kesovogorsky District.

History

Kesova Gora was known since approximately 1238, and it apparently was formed from a combination various smaller settlements: Krasny, Zaychy, and Grachi. Originally, the settlement was called Kyasova Gora, meaning "clay-filled region" in Finnish. For a long time, it was a votchina of the Prozorovsky noble family. One of the most important landmarks of the settlement is the still-functioning Nikolsky cathedral.

Economy

Kesova Gora's economy is primarily agriculture-based. There is also a bread-making factory, a linen factory, and a milk and meat packing company in the settlement.

Transporatation

The main form of transportation in the settlement is the passenger train which makes a stop at the historic wooden town train station (constructed in 1895) two or more times a day. The train travels from nearby Sonkovo to Savyolovo, and back. A more frequent bus service is also available in the area, but it only travels to closer locations. A road that travels from Kashin to Bezhetsk also passes through the settlement.
