Sister cities of Bogoroditsk

Bogoroditsk (Russian: Богоро́дицк) is a town and the administrative center of Bogoroditsky District of Tula Oblast, Russia, located on the Upyorta River, a tributary of the Upa. Population: 31,897 (2010 Census); 30,884 (2002 Census); 33,552 (1989 Census).

It was founded in the 1660s as a wooden fort. In the 1770s, the fort was demolished to make room for the palace of the Bobrinsky family. The main château, designed by Ivan Starov and partly destroyed during World War II, is adjoined by an English park, said to be the earliest in Russia outside St. Petersburg. Bogoroditsk was granted town status in 1777.
