Krasnoye Selo

Krasnoye Selo

      rayon (sector), St. Petersburg, northwestern Russia. The name Krasnoye Selo, meaning “beautiful village,” has been in use since 1730, when it described three settlements located southwest of St. Petersburg. Krasnoye Selo was the site of one of the summer residences for the tsars and the summer camp for Russian soldiers stationed in St. Petersburg. A paper mill dating from 1764 is located there, as well as plastics, metal-working, and food-processing industries. The Troitskaya Church (1735) was rebuilt in 1854.

      Krasnoye Selo became a city in 1925 and was incorporated into St. Petersburg (then Leningrad) in 1973.
