Novy Svoboda


Novy Svoboda began as a military outpost in the 1970's to guard against northern raiders and marked the most northerly point in Zelena. After the wool revolution in 1999 the new government made the settlement of the north a priority and Novy Svoboda was officially founded on the site of the old military camp. A large Zelenian Industrial Cooperative facility was built in the town as well as a permanent military base. Many small manufacturing industries grew in the city due to much cheaper land than in Zelena and access to centralized labour. By 2008 the town had swelled to over 1,500 people and continues to grow.
