Other user descriptions
Pyatigorsk (Russian: Пятигорск) is a city in Stavropol Krai, Russia. From the January 19, 2010 is the administrative center of the North Caucasus federal district. Located near the river Podkumok, about 20 kilometers from Mineralnye Vody (Минеральные Воды). The name Pyatigorsk means "five mountains" in Russian and is named for the five peaks of Mount Beshtau (which also means 5 mountains in the Turkish language of the Caucasus Mountains). Was founded in 1780 and has remained a mineral water spa since 1803. The Russian poet Mikhail Lermontov was killed in a duel at Pyatigorsk on July 27, 1841. There is a museum in town dedicated to his memory. The first mention of mineral water spring is in the writings of 14th century Arab traveler Ibn Battuta. Peter I was the one who first showed interest in the area to send a scientific expedition. Interest in the area is revived in the late 18th century when it was established the first Russian settlement - Fort Konstantinogorskaya in 1780, who was on Mount Mashuk. The value of mineral water in the Caucasus led to the construction of hotels, and the first studies on the medicinal properties in 1803: on April 24 of that year, Alexander I signed a decree which declared the medicinal waters of the state property.
