The article presents the results of analysis and systematization of Udmurt cities’ regular plans of the late 18th – early 19th century, including Sarapul, Glazov, Votkinsk, and Izhevsk. Archival materials have allowed the history of the first regular plans to be checked and their originality and typological features to be identified. The author describes basic preconditions and factors that influence the emergence of these cities and considers phases in their evolution of the plans and introduction of regular plans.
