Staraya Ladoga (Russian Старая Ладога, Finnish, Vanha Laatokka or Aldeigjuborg of the Norse sagas) is a village (selo) in the raion of Volkhov of Leningrad Oblast, Russia, located on the Volkhov River near Lake Ladoga. The town was an important trade center in the eighth and ninth centuries. Multiethnic settlement was dominated by the Scandinavians who are known by the name of Rus, and for that reason it is sometimes called the first capital of Russia. Dendrochronology suggests that Ladoga was founded in 753. Up to 950, was one of the most important commercial ports in Eastern Europe. Merchant ships sailing in the Baltic Sea through Ladoga to Novgorod and then to Constantinople and the Caspian Sea. This route became known as the trade route from the Varangians to the Greeks. An alternative route was along the river Volga along the Volga trade route to the capital of the Khazars, Atil, and then to the southern shores of the Caspian Sea, straight to Baghdad. Significantly, the oldest medieval Arab money has been unearthed in Ladoga. The inhabitants of ancient Ladoga were Norwegians, Finns and Slavs, hence the different names for the city. The Finnish name original-joki Alode (that is, "lowland river") appears as Aldeigja Old Norse as Ladoga (Ладога) in Old East Slavic.
