The city lies 110 km off the Trans-Siberian railroad on the left bank of the Amur River, which has formed Russia's border with China. Founded in 1856 as a military outpost, Blagoveshchensk received its current name two years later after the parish church of Annunciation (Blagoveshchenie in Russian). The city's growth was fuelled by a gold rush early in the 20th century and by its position on the Chinese border, just hundreds of metres across from the city of Heihe. The administrative centre of Amurskaya Oblast.
