During the Northern War different types of warships were built at the Solombala yard.
At the end of the 18 century, Arkhangelsk also became a center of sawmills. Present-day Archangelsk remains one of the leading centers of timber and timber-chemical industry in Russia.
The city is also a center of science and education in the North. It has Northern (Arctic) Federal University ,several schools of higher learning, a number of colleges.
Arkhangelsk is well-known for its museums, musical culture, artists and craftsmen.
