Vysotsk (before 1917 known as Trongzund and Uuras between 1917-1948) was first mentioned in documents in 1532 as a Swedish custom. For centuries, the Trongzund harbor has historically been the outer area of ​​the Vyborg port. The various cargo was transshipped from barges and small vessels to large sea vessels with higher drafts in the roadstead. In the first quarter of the 20th century, Uuras became the most significant forest harbor in Finland. The port worked from mid-April to mid-January. During the summer, up to two thousand ships could be loaded in the harbor.

The local authorities restored the railway, erected new berths, and installed powerful cranes.
