To analyze heavy metal contamination of urbanized soil in the Vladimir city, the soil was sampled and studied. The city area is represented by sod-medium podzolic and gray forest urbanized soil. Soil samples analysis included lead, zinc, copper, nickel, manganese, cobalt and chromium. The resulted parameters were compared to the maximum permissible concentrations and background values. The regularities between the studied sites proximity to the industrial enterprises and heavy metals concentration in soil have been found. The coefficients of heavy metals accumulation in soil have been calculated and the metals as priority pollutants with the highest accumulation coefficient have been identified. By calculating the cumulative accumulation index, the city area has been differentiated according to the hazardous degree. The research peculiarity comprises the sampling locations selection – school sites, as the child population is the most vulnerable to the diseases, associated with the heavy metals accumulation in soil.
