The destrict is elongatit frae northwast tae sootheast wi Loch Kubenskoye, ane of the biggest lakes in Vologda Oblast, formin its northeastren border. The loch is shared atween Vologodsky an Ust-Kubensky Destricts. Amaist aw o the destrict's territory lees in the basin o the Sukhona River. In pairticular, the rivers in the north lee in the basin o Loch Kubenskoye, the source o the Sukhona, an the soothren pairt is in the basin o the Vologda River, ane o the major tributars o the Sukhona. The Lezha River, anither major tributar o the Sukhona, forms the sootheastren border o the destrict, an the Sukhona itsel forms the eastren border, upstream frae the mooth o the Lezha.

Minor auries in the northwast o the destrict are in the Sheksna River's basin an some auries in the sooth o the destrict are in the basin o the Sogozha River. Baith rivers are left tributars o the Volga, an thus the divide atween the basins o the White an the Caspian Seas crosses the destrict.


Vologda was first mentioned in reliable sources in 1264 as a remote dounset controlled bi the Novgorod Republic. Subsequently, it became an important dounset on the trade route connectin Central Roushie tae the White Sea via the Northren Dvina River, an tharefore it wis a subject o frequent disputes atween Novgorod an the Grand Duchy o Moscow. In the 15t century, it became the seat o the quasi-unthirlt Principality o Vologda, which wis maist o the time controlled bi Moscow an which includit the current aurie o Vologodsky Destrict. In the 15t century, the aurie became a pairt o the Grand Duchy o Moscow.

In the course o the admeenistrative reform carriet oot in 1708 bi Peter the Great, the aurie wis includit intae Archangelgorod Govrenorate. Vologda wis specifically mentioned as ane o the touns comprisin the govrenorate. In 1780, Archangelogorod Govrenorate was abolisht an transformit intae Vologda Viceryalty, an in 1796 the latter wis split intae Arkhangelsk an Vologda Govrenorates. Wha is nou Vologodsky Destrict wis then a pairt o Vologodsky Uyezd o Vologda Govrenorate.

On 15 Julie 1929, several govrenorates, includin Vologda Govrenorate, wur mergit intae Northren Krai, an the uyezds wur abolisht. Insteid, Vologodsky Destrict wi the admeenistrative centre in Vologda wis establisht as a pairt o Vologda Okrug. On 20 Juin 1932, the destrict wis abolisht. Some o its territory wis transferred tae Chyobsarsky, Gryazovetsky, an Ust-Kubinsky Destricts, an the rest wis admeenistratively subordinatit tae Vologda.[8]

In the follaein years, the first-level admeenistrative diveesion o Roushie kept chyngin. In 1936, Northren Krai wis transformit intae Northren Oblast, which in turn wis split intae Arkhangelsk Oblast an Vologda Oblast in 1937. On 1 September 1938, Vologodsky Destrict wis re-establisht.[8]

On 15 Julie 1929, Chyobsarsky Destrict wi the admeenistrative centre in Chyobsara wis establisht. On 13 Dizember 1962, it wis abolisht an its territory wis split atween Vologodsky an Cherepovetsky Destricts. On 12 Januar 1965, Sheksninsky Destrict wis establisht, which includit some o the auries o the umwhile Chyobsarsky Destrict, includin the urban-teep dounset o Chyobsara.[8]

On 15 Julie 1929, Kubeno-Ozersky Destrict wi the admeenistrative centre in the selo o Kubenskoye wis establisht an aw. On 13 Dizember 1962, it wis abolisht an mergit intae Vologodsky Destrict.[8]
