Mezen - Мезень

Mezen was founded in the 16th century on the site of Okladnikova (Bolshoy) settlement (Sokolnya Nova) and Kuznetsova (Malaya) settlement of the Mezen district. The first to settle here was the boyar son of Okladnikov with his sons, the first mention of the settlement dates back to 1545. In the XVIII-XIX centuries Mezen preserved an old way of life: along the river, there was one long street with village huts on both sides, with two log churches and a lot of windmills on the outskirts. Mezen became the birthplace of many seamen-explorers, participants in polar expeditions. In the early 20th century Mezen was the place of exile of revolutionaries.

Мезень была основана в XVI веке на месте Окладниковой (Большой) слободы (Сокольня Нова) и Кузнецовой (Малой) слободы Мезенского уезда. Первым поселился тут новгородский боярин Окладников с сыновьями, первое упоминание о поселении относится к 1545 году. В XVIII—XIX веках Мезень сохраняла старинный бытовой уклад: вдоль реки тянулась одна длинная улица с деревенскими избами по обеим сторонам, с двумя бревенчатыми церквями и множеством ветряных мельниц на окраине. Мезень стала родиной многих моряков-землепроходцев, участников полярных экспедиций. В начале 20го века Мезень была местом ссылки революционеров. show less
