From ancient settlements to renovation programs

Mitino can be called a fairly young district of Moscow. The village of the same name became part of the capital in 1985, and massive development began here in the 1990s. However, the area has an ancient history. According to archaeologists, the first human sites appeared here at the end of the 3rd – the beginning of the 2nd millennium BC. Rivers full of fish and forests full of game attracted ancient people. Later, the tribes of Vyatichi and Krivichi settled in these places. As a legacy to subsequent generations, they left numerous burial mounds and settlements.

If you go back six centuries, to 1817, you can learn about the next important stage in the development of the territory. Residents of Ruza near Moscow began to move here, who were engaged in the restoration of Moscow after the fire of 1812. Gradually, the village grew: in 1879 in Novobratsevskoye (a microdistrict, which is now part of Mitin) a textile factory “Victory of Labor” appeared, a workers’ settlement was formed.

In addition to housing construction, the district’s social infrastructure is being systematically developed so that the townspeople can receive the necessary services near the house.
