History of Tutayev

Half between the towns of Rybinsk and Yaroslavl, on the bank of the Volga stands the town of Tutayev, former Romanov-Borisoglebsk. It is situated at a height of 40 m, on both sides of the Volga. For a long time, until the end of the XVIII century these parts were considered to be different towns.

One of them – left-bank Romanov – was founded as a fortress by decree of the Prince of Uglich Roman Vasilyevich. Its residents even took part in Kulikovskaya battle (1380).

On the right bank of the Volga appeared Boris-and-Gleb sloboda (district). It happened after the Yaroslavl uprising against Mongol-Tatars in 1232.

Two towns merged in one only in 1822 with the name Borisoglebsk, which was renamed in Tutayev in 1918.
