Yuryev-Polsky is an old town and the regulatory focus of Yuryev-Polsky District of Vladimir Oblast, Russia, situated in the upper ranges of the Koloksha River, 68 kilometers northwest of Vladimir, the managerial focal point of the oblast. It was established by Yury Dolgoruky in 1152. First piece of its name gets from Yury's benefactor holy person, St. George. The second part is gotten from the word polsky signifying "in the fields". This determination was required with the end goal to recognize the town from the prior built up stronghold of Yuryev these days Tartu, at the time situated in the forested areas in what is currently Estonia and afterward the greatest Russian settlement in the region of the Chuds.
