Polevskoy (Russian: Полевско́й) is a town in Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia, located 50 kilometers (31 mi) southwest of Yekaterinburg, the administrative center of the oblast. Population: 64,220(2010 Census);[5] 66,761(2002 Census);[8] 70,632(1989 Census);[9] 60,000 (1974); 25,000 (1939).


The town is best known for its Dumnaya Mountain, where a monument to those who died fighting Kolchak's army is located. The mountain and its surroundings are also mentioned in many tales by Pavel Bazhov.

The town was founded in the first quarter of the 18th century as a settlement around copper mines. The first mine was established in 1702 and the commercial development started in 1718. In 1724–1727, the Polevskoy Copper Smelting Plant was built to process the copper.

The modern town comprises the territories of former settlements of Gumeshki, Polevskoy, and Seversky.


The flag of Polevskoy consists of the Venus symbol (♀), which represents the chemical element copper, the character Lizard Queen of Russian folklore, the symbolic representation of the Stone Flower from the story of the same name, and the eight-pointed star, the brand of the Seversky Pipe Plant.

Within the framework of the administrative divisions, it is, together with thirteen rural localities, incorporated as the Town of Polevskoy[1]—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[10] As a municipal division, the Town of Polevskoy is incorporated as Polevskoy Urban Okrug.[3][1]
