Perm ( Russian: Пермь, IPA:  [pʲɛrmʲ]; [13]) is a city and the administrative center of Perm Krai, Russia, located on the banks of the Kama River in the European part of Russia near the Ural Mountains.

According to the 2010 Census, Perm's population is 991,162, [7] down from 1,001,653 recorded in the 2002 Census [14] and 1,090,944 recorded in 1989 Census. [15] As of the 2010 Census, the city was the thirteenth most populous in Russia. [7]

From 1940 to 1957 it was named Molotov ( Russian: Мо́лотов [ˈmoɫətəf]) in honor of Vyacheslav Molotov. [10]

Etymology

The name Perm is of Finno-Ugric etymology, likely of Uralic origin ( Komi-Permyak: Перем, Perem; Komi: Перым, Perym). Komi is a member of the Permic group of Finno-Ugric languages, which is also named for Perm. In Finnish and Vepsian perämaa means "far-away land"; similarly, in Hungarian perem means "edge" or "verge". The geologic period of the Permian takes its name from the toponym.
