History: 

Neu-Balzer was officially founded on the left bank of the Perevozinka River in 1863 as a Reformed colony, however there were colonists living there as early as 1850. The original colonists were resettling from the colony of Balzer. It was located 97 kilometers southwest of Saratov.

In 1942, following the deportation of the Volga Germans, the name of the settlement was changed to Perevoznika.

Nothing remains of the former colony of Neu-Balzer.

The Reformed congregation in Neu-Balzer was part of the Dietel parish.
