History The history of Arkhangelsk ties in with the Dutch sailing history. The city was founded in 1584 and went on to be the first Russian port to play a major role in the trade with Europe. In the 1560s, Dutch merchants began sailing their ships to the White Sea. By the 17th century it was mainly the Dutch who sent their trading ships to the northwestern part of Russia. In 1722, Peter the Great decreed that Arkhangelsk should no longer accept goods that were in excess of what the town needed, and all international marine trade was shifted to St. Petersburg.
