Town Of Chistopol
July 31, 2017 14:52


(Source: http://www.kazan.aif.ru/society/details)

 The settlement of Chistoe Polye (with the name meaning “Clear Field” in Russian) was first mentioned in the chronicles in late XVII - early XVIII century.

The name of the locality, according to one version, appeared in the following way: Kama runaway peasants or schismatics settled at the Kama River, but their first free settlement was burned, and a clear field remained in its place. Then the settlement was revived, but the memory of the great fire remained in its name. In 1761, by decree of Empress Catherine II, the settlement received the status of a district town of Chistopol.

The coat of arms of the new city was described as follows: “The upper part of the shield contains the coat of arms of Kazan. The lower part has a golden branded quadrangle - measuring bucket for grain – against the green field, meaning that this new town is trading in every sort of bread”. By the beginning of XX century Chistopol was a prosperous merchant town, the second most important town in the province of Kazan, the centre of trade in grain and “all sorts of bread”, as well as one of the centres of the Volga Old Believers.

During the Great Patriotic War the town became a shelter for more than 200 members of the Union of Soviet Writers. In 2014 the Chistopol State Historical, Architectural and Literary Museum-Reserve was established.
