VESELY POSELOK, an area in the south-east of St. Petersburg, on the right bank of the Neva River, between Dybenko Street, Bolshevikov Avenue and Novoselov Street. In the middle of the 19th century, a small industrial community appeared on the territory adjacent to the stationery factory of the Vargunins and cloth factory of Thornton. This settlement became one of the most underdeveloped city suburbs, that caused its ironic name (Vesely Poselok - "merry settlement"). The part of Vesely Poselok adjacent to the Neva River is an industrial zone formed in the late 19th century. There Nevskaya Manufaktura, Bumaga, Plastmassy, Reaktiv, the freight area of the Northwest Steamship Line and other enterprises are located. The territory to the east from Dalnevostochny Avenue was built up with standard residential houses in the late 1960s - early 1970s. The Nevskoe Memorial Military Cemetery is located on the territory of Vesely Poselok.
