Photo album “Nizhny Tagil. 300 years in the service of the Fatherland” was created by order of the mayor’s office. During the year, employees of museums and archives, photographers and designers worked on it. The concept of the book was developed by the head of the scientific and methodological center of the Nizhny Tagil Museum-Reserve Alfiya Fakhretdinova.

“This time we went beyond the scope of local history and tried to show what Nizhny Tagil is on the map of the country, what it is famous for, how it participated in large, large-scale projects of the country, how it supported the country in difficult times, during the Great Patriotic War, what its contribution. That was our task, and the authors, I think, coped with this task, ”said the concept maker.

The jubilee edition includes photographs, archival data on the birth of the Demidov metallurgical empire in the Urals, and the promotion of the Old Sable brand of iron products on world markets.

The contribution of Tagil enterprises to space exploration, the construction of the BAM and the Trans-Siberian Railway was noted. The book also mentions engineers and inventors, cultural and sports figures, doctors and scientists, whose names entered the national and world history. The last chapters tell about the life of Nizhny Tagil today. There are 300 pages in the photo album.
