Novocheboksarsk (Russian: ; Chuvash: , Sene Supaskar) is a city in the Chuvash Republic, Russia, located on the southern bank of the Volga River, about 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) east of Cheboksary, the capital of the republic. Population: 124,097?(2010 Census); 125,857?(2002 Census); 114,760?(1989 Census).
It was founded in 1960 when a trend of building satellite cities started. Starting from barren land, the growing town absorbed surrounding villages, such as Yelnikovo, Urakovo, Yandashevo, Anatkasy, and Tsygankasy.
November 18, 1960 is customarily considered to be the citys birthday. City status was granted in 1965. The city grew at a rapid rate; in 1978 it covered 1 square kilometer (0.39 sq mi), and on October 29, 1983 it passed 100,000 inhabitants.
Construction began on vacant land. Expanding, it incorporated the neighboring villages of Yelnikovo, Yandashevo, Anatkasy, Tsygankasy, etc. On December 27, 1971 the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Russian SFSR issued the Decree "On Granting the City of Novocheboksarsk of the Chuvash ASSR the Status of a City Under Republic Jurisdiction".
It was designed by architects from Leningrad. One of its first streets was Vinokurova, site of a 1985 monument to I. S. Semenovu. Another monument commemorates victims of the Great Patriotic War. Another honors Vladimir I of Kiev.
The city consists of three residential areas comprising eighteen microdistricts. The available housing as of August 1, 1999 was 458 apartment houses: 39,452 apartments plus 4,033 rooms.
