Troitsk (Russian: Тро́ицк) is a town in Chelyabinsk Oblast, Russia, located about 175 kilometers (109 mi) east of the southern Ural Mountains and approximately 110 kilometers (68 mi) south of Chelyabinsk. It is on the east-flowing Uy River, a branch of the Tobol River. Population: 83,862 (2002 Census);[1] 90,077 (1989 Census).[3]

It was founded in 1743 by Ivan Neplyuyev as part of the Orenburg Line of forts during the Bashkir War of 1735-1740. Troitsk played major role in the rebellion of Pugachev, who besieged and captured the town in 1774.

Troitsk serves as a railroad junction and a supply and trading center for the southern Ural Mountains mining district. The Russia-Kazakhstan border is immediately south of Troitsk (and is included in photograph). Several large, cultivated field patterns (elongated, rectangular shapes) are visible through the snow-covered landscape. Because the fields are large, it can be inferred that they are probably planted with spring wheat. Numerous circular, frozen lakes are scattered throughout the countryside around Troitsk.
