Troitsk, Chelyabinsk Oblast

Troitsk ( _ru. Тро́ицк) is a town in Chelyabinsk Oblast, Russia, located on a tributary of the upper Tobol River approximately km to mi|110 south of Chelyabinsk. Population: ru-census|p02=83862|p89=90077

Troitsk serves as a railroad junction and a supply and trading center for the southern Ural Mountains mining district. The Russia-Kazakhstan border is immediately south of Troitsk (and is included in photograph). Several large, cultivated field patterns (elongated, rectangular shapes) are visible through the snow-covered landscape. Because the fields are large, it can be inferred that they are probably planted with spring wheat. Numerous circular, frozen lakes are scattered throughout the countryside around Troitsk.

Founded by Ivan Neplyuyev, Troitsk played major role in the rebellion of Pugachev, who besieged and captured the town in 1774.
