VODNIKI

Пермь, Кировский район
Perm - 18km

The building is situated in the central part of Perm, nearby the “Postamt” stop of the public transport facilities.

The name of the micro-district is due to the river’s cove at this place. By the end of the XIX century, brothers Kamensky, renowned ship owners, established here commercial winter docks for their ships. The neighborhood was populated by river workers called then “vodniki”.

By the beginning of the XX century Kamensky docks were reformed into a Shipyard – the main enterprise of the neighborhood functioning until now. The micro-district is much bigger nowadays, there are Starye (Old) and Novye (New) Vodniki.
