MICHURINSKOYE (Finnish Valkjarvi = “white lake” before 1948), a settlement in Priozersk District. Population: 2100. Located on the shore of Lake Michurinskoye (former Valkjarvi.) In 1948 it was successively renamed Belozerskoye, Krivko (in memory of Captain D. Z. Krivko who was killed in action in the Karelian Peninsula in 1944 and buried in Valkjarvi), and finally M. (in honor of selectionist I. V. Michurin.) In 1944, a special trade school was established in Valkjarvi to educate personnel for the agriculture; in 1994 it was converted into the Leningrad Oblast Agricultural Engineering College. The settlement has a library.
