History of Tambov
Tambov was founded by the decree of Tsar Mikhail Fyodorovich on
April 17, 1636 (Old Style). Originally, it was a border fortress
against attacks by the Crimean Tatars, but it soon declined in
importance as a military outpost. It then became the region's
administrative and trade center.
Roman Boborykin, the
emperor's court menial (stolnik) and voivode was the town's first
builder. Thanks to his experience, the fortress had been completed
rapidly. Tambov was granted city status in 1719.
Tambov Viceroyalty was formed, and on August 16, 1781, Empress
Catherine the Great approved the city's coat of arms depicting a
beehive, symbolizing the town's hardworking residents. This
viceyorality was formed from southern parts of Ryazan Viceyorality
and northern parts of Voronezh Viceyorality. In March 1786, the
disgraced Russian poet and statesman Gavrila Derzhavin was appointed
the governor of Tambov Governorate—a post that he held until
December 1788. Even during that brief tenure he accomplished a great
deal: a theater, a college, a dancing school, a printing business,
an orchestra, and a brickyard were built. Tambov later erected a
monument to Derzhavin.
In November 1830, during the Cholera
Riots in Russia, the citizens of Tambov attacked their governor, but
they were soon suppressed by the regular army. Later in the 19th
century Tambov became a significant cultural center that supported a
growing number of schools, libraries, and other institutions. By
1897, its population was more than 50,000 people.
Civil War, in 1920–1921, the region witnessed the Tambov Rebellion—a
bitter struggle between local residents and the Bolshevik Red Army.
In 1921, a Tambov Republic was established, but it was soon crushed
by the Red Army under the command of Mikhail Tukhachevsky. Between
1928 and 1934, Tambov became okrug center in Central Black Earth
Oblast. After dissolving the oblast on 13 June 1934, it became the
raion center in Voronezh Oblast.Tambov finally became center of
Tambov Oblast, which was created from oblasts of Voronezh and
Kuybyshev on 27 September 1937. The oblast had present form after
