Coat of Arms of Tambov Region

A bit of history and geography

Tambov region spread its expanses in the central part of the Oka-Don lowland, which is in the south of the Russian plain. The "expanses" are not very extensive. After the Antonov uprising, the Bolsheviks cut the territory of the Tambov province gently in half. Actually, the Tambov region was formed in 1937 year. Before that Tambov had been a member of the Voronezh Region for several years. True, the population from the administrative reshuffling of the terms did not significantly lose weight.

The largest rivers are the Tsna (the Volga river basin); Crow, Savala, Voronezh and Bityug (the Don River basin). Also there are reservoirs, ponds.

Природная зона – лесостепь. Умеренно континентальный климат. Почва – пока еще черноземный слой, кое-где даже типичный мощный.

Flora, fauna (from those that are not completely extinct), relief, landscapes, the atmosphere - textbook for the Middle Russia. Is that small with a steppe squint.

Населяли эти дивные места в древности мордва и мещеры. Частично они были истреблены татаро-монголами, частично ушли на Мокшу и Оку или скрылись в лесах. Эти племена внесли свой вклад в формирование культуры и антропологии Тамбовского края.

If you see the term "Wild Field" in the history textbook, then this is just the territory of the present Tambov region and neighboring regions. In the time of the Horde, nomads and wild animals reigned here.

When the Horde yoke fell, the nomadic raids were still dangerous. On the order of Ivan the Terrible, the city of Shatsk was built on the river Tsne. Fugitive peasants created under his cover the settlements first on the forested side of the Tzna, then on the treeless territories. This was in the hands of the Moscow ruler, and they did not catch fugitives.

To stop robbery from the Crimean and Nogai Tatars, Kalmyk hordes in 1635, the city-fortress Kozlov (now Michurinsk) was laid, and in 1636 - Tambov. The approaches to the cities were protected by an earthen rampart. Today the Tatarsky Val exists as a historical landmark. Also there grow some extinct in other places grass.

Tambov defensive fortifications began to be populated by servicemen. This is reminiscent of the names of some localities (Sagittarius, Pushkari near the Tatar rampart). In 1676, the last major march of the Tatars to the local lands ended in failure.

Тамбовские крестьяне активно поддержали Степана Разина. Чтобы сдерживать вольные настроения, царь способствовал скорейшему появлению на Тамбовской земле помещиков. К тому же, проблему с кочевниками к этому времени решили.

The development of Tambov region took 225 years.

Здесь в поле можно найти поросший ковылем курган. Их поднимали над степью в самой высокой ее точке – на границе водораздела бассейнов Волги и Дона. Пограничник Дикого поля, часовой истории.

The regional center

Tambov can be traversed from the edge to the edge in half a day. Very good - like a province, and like the regional center. Institutions, what you need, everything is there. Megapolis does not crush, civilization is available.

Правда, за последние несколько лет к городу пристроили еще один Тамбов с северной стороны. Не то чтобы у населения были деньги на квартиры в новостройках. Но возводят, чего-то там осваивают.

Meanwhile, historical buildings are for the most part in a terrible state.

Их здесь много, старинных зданий. Они стоят вперемешку с модными стеклянными постройками. Древние, пока еще прочные, они тоже красивые и малость печальные.

For the sake of justice, something is still being repaired.

Тамбов иногда по старой памяти еще называют «зеленым городом». Из зелени там сейчас местами клумба, местами дерево растет.

Чего в Тамбове прибавилось – так это церквей. Различных конфессий. Дело нужное, безусловно. Где бы еще найти столько прихожан. А ради святого дела (освоение бюджета – святое дело) можно пожертвовать хоть Парком Победы, хоть самой Победой.

Meanwhile, there is a church on the territory of the region that they managed to save from the Communists. For example, the temple of Archangel Michael with a unique ceramic iconostasis is located in the village of Mordovo.

The civilization finally reached Tambov, and the city underwent mass building with McDonald's. A much more valuable institution than a bus station. Do not go anywhere, eat here. There is nowhere to work Tambovchanam, there is no production in the region, they just eat and pray.

Правда, существует авторитетное мнение, что правильно будет жителей Тамбова называть «тамбовцы». Наверняка вряд ли кто знает.

В целом – спокойный, приятный, тихий любимый город. Присутствует пока еще здесь умиротворение, электричество и пресная вода.
