History

When the Russians arrived in the 1640s, they built three forts on the Kolyma: Nizhnekolymsk, Srednekolymsk, and Verkhnekolymsk (i.e., lower, middle, and upper Kolymsk). They were about three days sled journey apart. Nizhnekolymsk was on the delta near the route to Anadyrsk. Srednekolymsk was at the head of navigation by seagoing koches, in forested country for good fur trapping and on the overland route to the Indigirka River. Verkhnekolymsk was smaller and upriver. The first fort ( ostrog ) was founded in 1644 [1] by Mikhail Stadukhin.[ citation needed ] Some[ who? ] say that this was Nizhnekolymsk, but Fisher [11] thinks that the original fort was Srednekolymsk and that the main Russian center was moved to Nizhnekolymsk by 1655 when the Anadyrsk route became important.

At some point the name was changed to Yarmanka, from the Russian word for "fair", referring to the annual gatherings of indigenous inhabitants of the area here in spring. The settlement grew over the next century, and was granted town status and its present name in 1775.[ citation needed ] In Imperial times, it was a destination for political exiles.

Administrative and municipal status

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Srendekolymsk serves as the administrative center of Srednekolymsky District. [1] As an inhabited locality, Srednekolymsk is classified as a town under district jurisdiction. [1] As an administrative division, it is, together with one rural locality (the selo of Lobuya), incorporated within Srednekolymsky District as the Town of Srednekolymsk. [1] As a municipal division, the Town of Srednekolymsk is incorporated within Srednekolymsky Municipal District as Srednekolymsk Urban Settlement. [4]

Economy and infrastructure

The town is largely reliant on farming of reindeer, hunting for pelts, and fishing.

Transportation

The town is served by the Srednekolymsk Airport ( IATA : SEK). In the summer, river transport takes place, and in the winter, land transport can be performed on the ice.

Climate

Srednekolymsk has a dry and very cold subarctic climate (Köppen climate classification Dfc), bordering on an extreme subarctic climate (Köppen climate classification Dfd), featuring with mild, sometimes hot, even very hot, but short summers and extremely brutal winters with almost no snowfall. The winter lasts from October until May and temperatures rise rapidly enough for Siberian larch trees to be able to grow during the fleeting summer, before falling rapidly again in August and September. Temperatures often do not exceed 0 °C (32 °F) between late September and early May.
