Derevshchikov is celebrated by the village of Blagodat, known back in the 18th-19th centuries. The settlement has survived to this day.

But the village of Nizhnyaya Strelchya, which had a second name – Vedmino, was renamed Krasnogorskoe in Soviet times.

“Still,” Witch “somehow sounded gloomy“, – says the blogger.

He was also interested in two villages with similar names: Sheep Waters and Good Waters.

The review of the curious place names of the Efremov region is completed by the village of Kin-Sadness.

“Another very old village with a nice name. It was located near the Kulikovo Pole railway station. So, if the sadness-printing has overcome, then we must urgently go here. The village is alive, but what about the station at the moment needs to be checked. “, – completes the review of Derevshchikov.
