History[edit] See also: Timeline of Voronezh Foundation and name[edit] Voronezh
originates as a settlement of the Kievan Rus
Kievan Rus
in about the 12th century, first mentioned in the Hypatian Codex (dated 1177). The Voronezh River
Voronezh River
is likely named for the settlement, then in the Principality of Chernigov.[15] The toponym is usually derived from a Slavic personal name Voroneg, apparently a derivation from voron "raven", [16] The comparative analysis of the name "Voronezh" was carried out by the Khovansky Foundation in 2009.[17] Voronezh
was presumably still in existence when Chernigov was absorbed into the Grand Duchy of Lithuania
Grand Duchy of Lithuania
in the 15th century;[18] Voronezh itself was not part of the territory of the Grand Duchy, the middle Don basin, including the Voronezh
river, during the 15th century formed part of the marches separating the Grand Duchies of Lithuania and Muscovy from the Golden Horde. In the 16th century, the area was gradually conquered by Muscovy from the Nogai Horde
Nogai Horde
(a successor state of the Golden Horde), and the current city of Voronezh
was established in 1585 by Feodor I as a fort protecting the Muravsky Trail
Muravsky Trail
trade route against the raids of the Nogai and Crimean Tatars.[10] 17th to 20th centuries[edit]

In the 17th century, Voronezh
gradually evolved into a sizable town. Weronecz is shown on the Worona river in Resania in Joan Blaeu's map of 1645.[19] Peter the Great
Peter the Great
built a dockyard in Voronezh
where the Azov Flotilla was constructed for the Azov campaigns
Azov campaigns
in 1695 and 1696. This fleet, the first ever built in Russia, included the first Russian ship of the line, Goto Predestinatsia. The Orthodox diocese of Voronezh
was instituted in 1682 and its first bishop, Mitrofan of Voronezh, was later proclaimed the town's patron saint.

View of Voronezh
in the 18th century

Owing to the Voronezh
Admiralty Wharf, for a short time, Voronezh became the largest city of South Russia
and the economic center of a large and fertile region. In 1711, it was made the seat of the Azov Governorate, which eventually morphed into the Voronezh
Governorate. In the 19th century, Voronezh
was a center of the Central Black Earth Region. Manufacturing industry (mills, tallow-melting, butter-making, soap, leather, and other works) as well as bread, cattle, suet, and the hair trade developed in the town. A railway connected Voronezh with Moscow
in 1868 and Rostov-on-Don
in 1871. During World War II, Voronezh
was the scene of fierce fighting between Russian and combined Axis troops. The Germans used it as a staging area for their attack on Stalingrad, and made it a key crossing point on the Don River. In June 1941, two BM-13 (Fighting machine #13 Katyusha) artillery installations were built at the Voronezh
excavator factory. In July, the construction of Katyushas was rationalized so that their manufacture became easier and the time of volley repetition was shortened from five minutes to fifteen seconds. More than 300 BM-13 units manufactured in Voronezh
were used in a counterattack near Moscow
in December 1941. In October 22, 1941, the advance of the German troops prompted the establishment of a defense committee in the city. On November 7, 1941, there was a troop parade, devoted to the anniversary of the October Revolution. Only three such parades were organized that year: in Moscow, Kuybyshev, and Voronezh. In late June 1942, the city was attacked by German and Hungarian forces. In response, Soviet forces formed the Voronezh
Front. By July 6, the German army occupied the western river-bank suburbs before being subjected to a fierce Soviet counter-attack. In July 24 frontline was stabilised along Voronezh
river. This was the opening move of Case Blue. Until January 25, 1943, parts of the Second German Army and the Second Hungarian Army occupied west part of Voronezh. During Operation Little Saturn, the Ostrogozhsk–Rossosh Offensive, and the Voronezhsko-Kastornenskoy Offensive, the Voronezh Front exacted heavy casualties on Axis forces. On January 25, 1943, Voronezh
was liberated after ten days of combat. During the war the city was almost completely ruined, with 92% of all buildings destroyed. 1950s–2000s[edit] By 1950, Voronezh
had been rebuilt. Most buildings and historical monuments were repaired. It was also the location of a prestigious Suvorov Military School, a boarding school for young boys who were considered to be prospective military officers, many of whom had been orphaned by war.[20] In 1950–1960, new factories were established: a tire factory, a machine-tool factory, a factory of heavy mechanical pressing, and others. In 1968, Serial production of the Tupolev Tu-144
Tupolev Tu-144
supersonic plane was established at the Voronezh
Aviation factory. In October 1977, the first Soviet domestic wide-body plane, Ilyushin Il-86, was built there. In 1989, TASS published details of an alleged UFO landing in the city's park and purported encounters with extraterrestrial beings reported by a number of children. A Russian scientist that was cited in initial TASS reports later told the Associated Press
Associated Press
that he was misquoted, cautioning, "Don't believe all you hear from TASS," and "We never gave them part of what they published",[21] and a TASS correspondent admitted the possibility that some "make-believe" had been added to the TASS story, saying, "I think there is a certain portion of truth, but it is not excluded that there is also fantasizing".[22][23] 2010s[edit] From 10 to 17 September 2011, Voronezh
celebrated its 425th anniversary. The anniversary of the city was given the status of a federal scale celebration that helped attract large investments from the federal and regional budgets for development.[24] On December 17, 2012, Voronezh
became the fifteenth city in Russia
with a population of over one million people.[25] Today Voronezh
is the economic, industrial, cultural, and scientific center of the Central Black Earth Region.
