Tomsk

Tomsk, a centre of the Tomsk region, is located on the right bank of the Tom river. It was founded in 1604 after the Russian tsar Boris Godunov ordered Cossack leader Gavril Pisemsky and officer Vasiliy Tyrkov to found a fort on the Tom River, on Tatar land, to protect the river crossing and Eushta population from Kalmyk and Kyrghiz tribes.

In 1629 Tomsk was raised into the status of a centre of the region. It became important as a military center for pacifying the native people and evolved into a regional administrative center. Beginning in the late 1830s, its population grew quickly thanks to the intensifying gold-mining activity in Siberia. The present Tomsk with a population of 473 thousand is one of the largest industrial, scientific and cultural centers of Western Siberia.
