Nizhny Tagil is the second largest city in the Sverdlovsk region, a major industrial and cultural center of the Middle Urals, founded in 1722 by Tula industrialists Nikita and Akinfiy Demidov.
Thanks to the appearance of Nizhny Tagil factories in the XVIII century, Russia first entered the world market as an industrial power with high-quality metal. In the second half of the XVIII century, about 2/3 of Demidov iron was exported. Tagil sheet copper, metal with the trademark "Old Sable", malachite, gold and platinum served as the basis of industrial development and prosperity of Russia.
For almost three hundred years, highly energy-intensive industries have developed in the city: ferrous metallurgy and metalworking, chemistry, light and food industries. The share of the main industries accounts for 95.4% of the total volume of products produced by the city's industry. The city was and remains a steel pillar of Russia, its defense shield. This is the largest industrial center created by the power of the old Demidov factories and modern giant enterprises.
