TSVELODUBOVO (Finnish Kaukolempiälä before 1948), a settlement in Vyborg District. Population: 1,200. Located near Lake Nakhimovskoye (previously Suulajarvi.) Initially, the settlement was one of the three parts of a large village of Voipiälä that was called Far Voipiälä. Next, the name Kaukolempiälä appeared meaning Far Lempiälä (from the personal name Lempi.) Since the late 19th c. it has been a popular dacha place. In 1948 it was renamed first Gornaya village, and finally Tsvelodubovo (in honor of air pilot Y. A. Tsvelodub buried there.) In the environs of T. there are children’s recreational camps, and Nakhimovskoye tourist hotel; on the western shore of Lake Nakhimovskoye there is a training base of the Nakhimov Naval School. The famous basketball coach S. Y. Gelchinsky was buried in T.
