The city was founded in 1374 on the banks of the river Vyatka. Throughout its history the city had several names: first it was called Chlynov, then Vyatka and in 1934 the city was named after S.M. Kirov, a famous statesman of the past.

Dymkovo toys are the most well-known folk arts in Kirov. Dymkovo is a suburb of Kirov and a birth place of bright colour sculptures. Dymkovo toys date back to the 15 th century. The village of Dymkovo was founded by people from Veliki Ustyug. They were the first to model beautiful clay figures.

Like every town Kirov has a charm of its own. The nature of Kirov region is rich and beautiful. The city is surrounded by thick woods stretching for many kilometers. One of the sights of Kirov is a beautiful memorial to those Kirovites who perished during the Great Patriotic War. It is in Grins embankment. In front of the monument there is an eternal flame.
