Description of Myshkin

Myshkin is a historic medieval town in Yaroslavl Oblast. Its name is translated as "Mouse" in Russian (mysh- мышь). According to a legend in 16th century Russian prince Fyodor Mstislavsky fell asleep on the banks of the Volga river. He was awakened by a mouse that crept on his face. At first he reacted angrily to a small creature, but once he saw a poisonous snake crawl near him, he realized that the mouse actually saved his life. So the mouse became the symbol of the new town.
