Velikoe – a “great” village The name “Velikoe” comes from the Russian word “великий” – “great, big” in English, because Velikoe was a big trading centre. In the 19th century this great factory village became famous as a flax industry centre.
The Karnowich’s family played an important role in the developing of the village. In 1844 E.S.Karnowich organized the first flax-works selling exhibition in Velikoe. Since that time such exhibitions took place here every year. Lots of people from other provinces took part there. The Karnowich’s family
A.V.Lokalov made a valuable contribution to development of Velikoe. He was a great person, who founded one of the first and the most famous flax-mills in Russia.
