History

In 1688–1693, Peter the Great built his famous “fun flotilla” on Lake Pleshcheyevo for his own amusement, including the so-called Peter’s little boat, which would be considered the forefather of the Russian fleet. The Botik (small boat) museum chronicles the history of the first Russian fleet and keeps one of the original model boats.

In 1708, the town became a part of Moscow Governorate.
