    The railway station of Olenya was opened in 1916, with the construction of the Murman Railway. The station facilities, and the small settlement associated with the station were located to the east of the railroad. Their importance was somewhat increased in the 1930s, as Olenya became a junction for the railway branch to the newly built town of Monchegorsk some 30 kilometers to the southwest. In 1949, work started on the iron ore strip mines and ore-processing facilities a few kilometers to the w

As a municipal division, Olenegorsk Town with Jurisdictional Territory is incorporated as Olenegorsk Urban Okrug.

    All passengers trains on the St. Petersburg–Murmansk railway stop at Olenegorsk. The station also serves the nearby town of Monchegorsk, which itself has next to no passenger service, the Olenya airbase, a more remote Sami village of Lovozero, and the mining town of Revda in Lovozersky District.

    The town economy continues to be based on iron ore extraction and processing, mostly shipping enriched ore to Severstal in Cherepovets. Military bases include the Olenya air base and Olenegorsk Radar Station.

    Polyarny is a town and the administrative center of the closed administrative-territorial formation of Alexandrovsk in Murmansk Oblast, Russia, situated on the outermost western side of the Kola Bay. Population: 17,293; 18,552; 27,635. It was previously known as Alexandrovsk, Alexandrovskoye, Polyarnoye.

    It was founded in 1896 and named Alexandrovsk in honor of Tsar Alexander III. Other sources, however, state that the original name was Alexandrovsk-na-Murmane, it was called so after Alexandra Fyodorovna, wife of Emperor Nicholas II, and did not become known as "Alexandrovsk" until later.

    Within the framework of administrative divisions, Polyarny serves as the administrative center of the closed administrative-territorial formation of Alexandrovsk—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts—to which it is directly subordinated. Within the framework of municipal divisions, the town of Polyarny is a part of Alexandrovsk Urban Okrug.

    Since the 1930s Polyarny has had naval significance. Russian Shipyard Number 10 is located in Polyarny, and in the West is more often referred to by the name of the town than by its official name. As the first nuclear-powered submarines were delivered to the Northern Fleet at the end of the 1950s, the yard was modified for docking and repair of these vessels. As Soviet naval nuclear vessels are decommissioned, they are laid up at Polyarny to await defuelling and disposal.

    In a presidential decree dated May 5, 2008, the town of Polyarny was awarded the title of City of Military Glory.

    In the Tom Clancy novel The Hunt for Red October, the experimental Typhoon-class nuclear submarine Red October departs on her voyage from Polyarny. In 2018 action thriller Hunter Killer, directed by Donovan Marsh, the main plot revolves around an attempted coup d'état against the Russian President in while he is visiting a major Russian base of naval operations in Polyarny.
