This is the third city of Perm Krai at 200 km to the north from Perm.

The city’s appearance and name are due to saltworks installed here by the XV century. By the XX century, big deposits of potash and potash-magnesium salts were discovered in Solikamsk and favored the city’s economy development. Main enterprises of Solikamsk are JSC “Uralkali” and JSC “Solikamsk Magnesium Works”. At the central place of the city you can see the Monument to the Salt.

Solikamsk is one of the historical cities of Russia, there are many architecture monuments here including 12 churches: St.Trinity Church, Cathedral Belltower, Epiphany Church and others.

In the northern part of Solikamsk you can find the “Salt Museum” located in the former “Ust-Borovsk Saltworks” – the only one of this kind in Perm Krai that worked until 1972.
