Chaikovsky is one of the youngest towns of the Kama region. It is a large modern administrative, economic, cultural, and educational centre in the south of the Perm Krai.
The town's history goes back to the post-war development years. The rapid growth of the economy in the Urals demanded new energy resources. In 1954 a group of engineers and construction workers came to the banks of Kama and laid the foundations of the Votkinsk Hydroelectric Power Plant and a future town that would later be granted the name of a great composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
Over 20 large companies and more than 1,500 SME's operate in Chaikovsky.
Oil was discovered here in 1957; there is commercial oil production in the region today. Brick clay deposits prompted the construction of a brick factory. Its current annual production volume is more than 14 million units of eight different types.
Culture and Education
While being quite a young town, Chaikovsky has already become a large cultural centre that boasts a well developed education system.
The Local Lore Museum founded in 1963 is one of the first and the largest cultural facilities. In 1970, an art gallery was opened. It exhibits the works by Aivazovsky, Tropinin, Braz, Shishkin, Shirokov, and Tumbasov.
