History

It was first mentioned in 1356 as the village of Koshira () named after the Koshira River (today's Kashirka River).[] However, 1619 is considered Kashira's foundation year, when the town was transferred from the left bank of the Oka to the right bank some 5 kilometers (3.1 mi) upstream and rebuilt after it was badly damaged by the Crimean Tatars in 1592 and 1596.

The town was once home to exiled Kazan Khan Ghabdellatif. The coat of arms of Kashira contains the image of Zilant, a heraldic symbol of Kazan.

Town status was granted to Kashira in 1777.[]
