Novocheboksarsk (Russian: Новочебокса́рск; Chuvash: Çěнě Шупашкар, Thĕnĕ Supashkar) is a city in the Chuvash Republic, Russia, located about 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) east of the republic's capital city of Cheboksary, on the southern bank of the Volga River. Population: 124,113 (2010 Census preliminary results);[1] 125,857 (2002 Census);[2] 114,760 (1989 Census).[4]



Novocheboksarsk was founded in 1960 when a trend of building satellite cities started. Starting from barren land, the growing town absorbed surrounding villages, such as Yelnikovo, Urakovo, Yandashevo, Anatkasy, and Tsygankasy.

November 18, 1960 is customarily considered to be the city's birthday. Town status was granted in 1965. The city grew at a rapid rate; in 1978 it covered a square kilometre, and on October 29, 1983 it passed 100,000 inhabitants.

Construction began on vacant land. Expanding, it incorporated the neighboring villages of Yelnikovo, Yandashevo, Anatkasy, Tsygankasy, etc. On December 27, 1971 the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Russian SFSR issued the Decree "On Granting the City of Novocheboksarsk of the Chuvash ASSR the Status of a City Under Republic Jurisdiction".

It was designed by architects from Leningrad. One of its first streets was Vinokurova, site of a 1985 monument to I. S. Semenovu. Another monument commemorates victims of the Great Patriotic War. Another honors Vladimir I of Kiev.

The city consists of three residential areas: Eastern, Southern, and Western comprising eighteen city microdistricts.[5] [6] [7] The available housing as of 1 August 1999 was 458 apartment houses: 39,452 apartments plus 4,033 rooms.

Relationship with Cheboksary

Novocheboksarsk is located 21 km from Cheboksary, the capital of the Chuvash Republic. The boundary was confirmed in December, 1998. Economically and geographically, the two cities have much in common. They are served by similar types of transport.
