Subject / Ethnic culture

Novosaratovskaya colony (the present village of Novosaratovka of Vsevolozhsk District) is a settlement of Germans - colonists on the right bank of the Neva River. It was founded by immigrants from Württemberg and Brandenburg in 1765. In the 18th century it was called «Sechziger Kolonie» - "Kolonia shestidesyati" ("The Colony Of the Sixty") (according to the number of the families. During settling each family was promised the allotments in ten dessiatinas (10,900 sq. metres) (the real plots of land were smaller) and given 150 roubles. In 1766 in Novosaratovskaya colony a Lutheran parish arose (see St.Catherine's Lutheran Church). Novosaratovskaya colony was the largest foreign settlement in the Saint Petersburg gubernia, 1200 people lived here in 1900. In summer at the expense of the holiday visitors the number of population in the colony was more than 3000 people (see People who spend time at their dachas (holiday cottage in the country). After deportation of Germans in 1942 (see Ethnic Deportation) Novosaratovskaya colony, like other colonies, turned into a settlement without marked ethnic specific character (in 2002 the population of Novosaratovka Village was 501 people).
