History and culture
The first wheel road to Yeniseisk took place in Kazachinsky district in the 17th century. The villages founded by the Cossacks on the Yenisei banks served the ships following the river. Future regional center was founded in 1636 as a stockaded town of Kazachiy Lug, although people had lived there before. Archeologists have found evidence of our ancestors related to 14-12 millennium BC.

Sights and events
One of the most difficult parts along Yenisei, Kazachinsky rapid, begins near Kazachinskoye village at around 223 km. Here the Yenisei Ridge crosses the river, creating two-meter waves. Ships overcome the granite ridge by chain boat "Yenisei" (there are two boats of this type in the world). There is a great place for construction of a recreation center near Kazachinskiye rapids: good fishing conditions, beautiful views and plenty of opportunities for river excursions. The village has the House of Culture and the Museum and Exhibition Centre.


Pilgrims from all over Russia also come to Kazachinskoye to look at the icon of Our Lady of Kazan, which is in a wooden Holy Trinity Church, and visit the spring of Peter and Paul. The district administration and workers of culture are planning to create a center of folk crafts and museum complex "Kazachiy lug", the core of which will be a stylized Cossack stockaded town. These objects will make visitors familiar with the history of the Kazachinsky district development and allow them to revive blacksmithing, boiler craft, silversmithing, tanning, coining, weaving, which the district was famous for since the 19th century.
