The village is located on the right bank of the river Unda. It was founded in 18th century by workers of Nerchinsk silver factory who organized settlement there. Then the Cossacks and farmers settled there. In 1932 the collective farm named in honour of Voroshilov K.E. was created there. The most widespread surnames are Baranovs, Gostevs and Dedentsovs.

Nowadays the population of village is about 538 people. There is a secondary school, a kindergarten, a library, a club, a first aid station.

Matusovskoe settlement includes such villages as Novoivanosk,Matusovo and Sarbaktuy.


The name of village originated from the name of the river Unda. The word “unda” means “main, foundation”. It was founded in 1902. There was a primary school, a church and a hospital.

When the collective farms were created, the “Undinskiy” farm was one of the best farms in the region.

Of course the changes and reformations led to the destruction of farm. Now there is a big, modern school, a college,where schoolchildren of district can get the additional education. The new club was built there in 2010. There are a lot of shops, a post office, a kindergarten. A businessman Saranchukopened a meat-packing factory in Unda.

In 1952 the new collective farm was built there. The head of it was AndreyPetrovichDesyatnik. The farm was one of the richest in USSR. There was a cornmill, a piggery, a poultry farm.

Nowadays there is a secondary school, club, a canteen, 5 shops, a park,a stadium, a hospital and a kindergarten.


The village was founded in the 18th century and was named by a surname of the first settlers of village.The conditions for agriculture seemed to be attractive for people and soon the village Kolobovo became a developed agricultural complex.

The people of the village were the active participants of historical events. They took part in the Great Revolution and the First World War. In 1920 many people of Kolobovo were the participants of oppositional rebellion against the Soviet power.

Now there is no any enterprices in Kolobovo. In 990s the gold-mining company began to organize its activity. But because of lack of investments the works in the pit were stopped.

The primary school in Kolobovo was shut in 1993. Children from Kolobovo study at Zhidkinskayaschool.

There is a first aid station, a club, a post office, and a shop in Kolobovo. The main problem of people is absence of telephone connection.


This village was founded 220 years ago. People who lived on the island Stepanoff, after the flood found the higher place for living. There lived two brothers, farmers Doronya and OnoshaPodoinitsins. They had a big farm. Then they divided their farm and Onosha lived on the left bank of the river. There is a village Onohovo now. The first name of Podoinitsino was Doronino. But Doronya’s family was bigger, he had 10 children, and the surname Podoinitsin was widespread.

As all the villages of Baley district, Podointsino was developed agricultural complex.

Now there is a club, a new building of school, a kindergarten, 2 shops and a stadium.


The village was founded in the 19th century after the surname of prisoners, brothers Kazakovs. In 1838 the deposit of gold was opened in the village, and gold-miners worked there. That’s why it is called Promyisel.

In 1912 the mining factory was opened there. Also there was a prison, where GeorgiyIvanovichKotovskiy was under arrest.

In 1917 in the building of former prison there was a school.

Now KazakovskiyPromyisel has a geological enterprice and a gold-mining pit. There is a school, a kindergarten, a bank, a hospital, a post-office, a library and a club.

Also there are clubs and libraries in Zhidka, Unda, Kolobovo, Ildikan, Undino-poselie, Matusovo and Kazakovo. Sometimes circus actors come to our district and make performance there.

The House of Culture “Gornyak” was built in 1935 as a worker’s club. There was a big and beautiful park with attractions near it and the café “Crystral”. There was a fountain near the club.

Now the park is very dirty and all the attractions are destroyed. The club.was reconstructed in 2011. The park will be reconstructed too, as the local authorities say and write.

All the cultural events of district are described in the local newspaper “Baleyskaya nov”. The editor of the newspaper is Larissa Troegubova. She works and connects with the director of the club and librarians.

Make a gist from the article

В сентябре 2012 года в Балей приехали знаменитые забайкальские поэты и писатели. Малый зал дома культуры «Горняк» хотя и не был полным, но многие люди пришли на эту встречу. В зале сидели и дети, и молодежь. Редактор художественного журнала «Слово Забайкалья» Олег Попов поведал о том, журнал за 5 лет существования опубликовал более 6 тысяч произведений. Данное издание знают и выписывают за пределами Забайкалья. Поэт Николай Ярославцев читал детские стихи.Писательница Алла Озорнина- мастер детского детектива, представила свои новые произведения. Уроженец Балея Владимир Попов, писатель и драматург, представил свои книги о Балее. Балейские самодеятельные поэты Надежда Балагурова и Татьяна Пискунова исполнили авторские песни. Встреча прошла замечательно! Хочется, чтобы такие встречи проходили почаще и дарили нам искры творчества, добра и любви к людям!
