Historical information

Borovichi district was formed October 10, 1927. History of the Borovichsky region is closely linked with the name of the Great Russian commander A. V. Suvorov. At 35 kilometers from the town there is the village Konchansky-Suvorovsky, where he was in exile from May 5, 1797 to February 6, 1799, it was here he went to the famous alpine march. The culture preserve of A.V.Suvorov works here since 1942.

Here the well-known composer A.K.Liadov liked spending summers. The Festival named Liadov is held in the town for many years. The Borovichi land is associated with the researcher and traveler N.N Miklukho-Maclay, the writer V.Bianki , who called this land  as "Wonder Land" for its beauty, and the artist Nicholas Roerich.

Borovichi was given the town status by Catherine the Great at May 28, 1770. In April 1772 the Senate approved the plan and the emblem of Borovichi town.

Industrial development of the town is connected with the production of refractory bricks, which started in seventies of the XIX century. In 1851 after Nikolaev railway opening the value of the river Msta as water transport artery, was lost, and the development of refractory industry has become a new landmark in the town history. The large deposits of lime, iron pyrites, brown coal and fire clay were discovered near Borovichi. In 1786 at the mouth of the river Kruppa, that is the Msta tributary, the first lignite-mining gallery in Russia was constructed. In 1855, not far from Borovichi, Nobel established the first factory of refractory products.

The town hallmark is a metal arch bridge, built in 1905 by the project of Russian engineer and scientist N. A. Belelyubsky connecting Trade and Spasskaya sides.
