A Journey Along the Starotobolsky Highway
June 29, 2018 13:45


The employees of the Tyumen State University (TyumSU) have developed a tourist route along the Starotobolsky Highway, as the Strategic Communications Department of the university reports. A journey along the Starotobolsky Highway, that was a part of the Siberian Highway, begins with ancient Russian villages founded near Tyumen in the middle of the 18th century: Antipino, Malkovo and the village of Subbotina.


“As we pass further on the route, there are the small villages of Parenkina and Oshkoukova. The patrol journal of Tyumen for the year 1623 proves that Oshkoukova is one of the oldest Russian villages in the vicinity of the city”, according to the report. Then tourists will visit the village of Chikcha founded on the turn of XV and XVI centuries, the villages of Yesaulova and Yakushi.

In 1826-1827 the Decembrists were transported for penal servitude through the highway, later the road was used for transportation of the members of “Narodnaya Volya” (populists). The names of such scientists and travelers as Gerhard Miller, Peter Pallas, Alexander Humboldt, Johann Gmelin, Grigorii Potanin, Nikolai Przhevalsky, writers Nikolai Chernyshevsky and Vladimir Korolenko, are connected with this road.
