Usage notes[edit]

Denotes a Russian administrative unit that is similar to a village, but with a special purpose and an urban infrastructure. The population is no more than 3000 inhabitants, and the settlement is usually centered around a single industry. Most townlets are built around factories, mines or power stations, but some are like health resorts and have a sanitarium and health facilities. There are also dacha townlets, constructed around private recreation as a summer or weekend retreat.
