Kalmykia: Lagan Legends
September 20, 2016 02:41


There is a legend about the foundation of Lagan.

Once upon a time a family of poor Kalmyk man Laganka lived on the sea. The family was big and household was humble. Once Laganka went to sea to fish. The sea was calm and quiet that day. Laganka set network and lay down to rest on the bow of the boat. When he woke up, the storm has started that was intensified with each passing minute. The Laganka’s boat was swept out to the sea, where he fought with the nature for several hours. Then his strength exhausted, and he fell in the apples. When Laganka came to life, it was found that the storm died down, and the boat washed ashore. He got out of the water and went to inspect the place where he found himself. It turned out that he was washed up on a small island, which he really liked. Back home, Laganka constantly thought about the mysterious island, and in the winter he moved to live there with his family.

Next year, the storm washed a few fishing boats ashore to the island. Laganka sheltered the fishermen, fed and helped them to repair the boats, so that they can return home. Soon the news of the island of Laganka spread all along the coast. Some fishermen also decided to move to the island. So here a small settlement was formed, which became known as Lagankin. And then an entire village grew, and it was named as Lagan.
