Leninogorsk is a small town, situated in the south-east of Tatarstan. It was founded in 1955 and we can say it is a very young town. Before 1955 there was a village, called Pismyanka. As soon as oil was found in our place, oil industry began to develop and the town began to build and grow. As oil industry plays an important part in the economy and life of the town, Leninogorsk is called the town of oilmen.
