History.
Numerous archaeological findings were made on the territory of Sinitsinsky pine forest, including the remains of mammoths, traces of the ancient Andronovo culture and the ancient settlement of sargats. No other town in Russia has such a large number of sculptures and images of the Humpbacked Horse as Ishim.

Legends.
The town has a monument to Parasha-the Siberian girl. It is said that the girl walked on foot from Ishim to Moscow to beg forgiveness of Nicholas II for her father who was exiled to Siberia. The emperor was so amazed with the brave girl’s action that he fulfilled her request. The traveler herself, however, fell ill and died after this incredibly long and difficult journey.

Celebrities.
Pyotr Yershov - writer and storyteller.
Nikolai Nikitin - design engineer who designed the Ostankino Tower.
Boris Shakhlin - gymnast, six-time Olympic champion.
Vladimir Shteingeil - Decembrist.
