A Legend of Tomsk

There are very many wonderful, amazing legends about the origin of such names as Tom, Bassandaika, Ushaika and others. This is one of them ...

0

Far long before the Russian people came here, the Tomsk lands were populated by small Tatar tribes and they were not good neighbours. On the left bank of the beautiful river covered with thick forests there was a settlement of Tatar princeling Toyan, and on the wooden right bank – the rich lands of princeling Bassanday were lying.

Bassanday and Toyan were great enemies. They did hate each other. But their children – Toyan's daughter, the beautiful Toma and Bassanday's son Ushai were in love with each other. And their love was so great that they could not live in separation.

The courageous Ushai with his friends crossed the stormy river and stole up to Toyan's small town. Toma was waiting for them.

But they could not go away. Toyan's servants attacked them. Ushai was killed in the unequal fight. And the beautiful Toma with a cry of horror and despair rushed into the river ...

When Toyan learned this terrible news he couldn't survive his great grief. He came to the brink of the river's bank, stood here for a while and then plunged into the water ...

Everywhere his servicemen were looking for Ushai. And at last they came back with his corpse. For many long hours old Bassandai was sitting near his dead son. The short day was over. It was getting dark. People went to their nomad tents. But the broken-hearted father was sitting and talking silently to his son ...

Since that time such names as Tom, Bassandaika, Ushaika, Toyanovo Lake have been known to everybody.

The Emblem of Tomsk

The well-known emblem of Tomsk is a silver horse on the green background with a golden crown above it. It was made in 1804. The history of the emblem is connected with the history of this country and the town. In the period from 1645 till 1676 many towns of Russia were making their own emblems. The symbol of Siberia was a sable. Tomsk had it in its emblem too.

In 1708 the great Russian tsar Peter I divided Russia into 8 governmental regions. In Siberia its own government with the centre in Tobolsk was formed. That's why it was necessary to have new emblems of the towns. The Italian painter Santi and the Russian painter Baranov made the second emblem of Tomsk. It represented a miner with his tools.

Time passed. In 1804 the Tomsk Province was formed. It united the present territories of the Tomsk, Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Semipalatinsk, Krasnoyarsk regions and East Kazakhstan. The life at that time was very difficult in Siberia, the roads were awful and very long. There were no cars, buses or trolley-buses there. Only horses, the great helpers of people. Life without them was impossible. And the horse became the symbol of our town.
