Artist's description:

Like many small Russian cities, Ostashkov was not always considered proud. Prior to the status of the city, he grew up only in 1770 and he called Klichin as the island on which it arose. The fortified town of the Suzdal princes at Klichen was first mentioned already in 1371. They say that fishermen, who were passing by one of the islands, always seemed to cry - as if someone was calling them and calling out to them. Crossed, they tried as quickly as possible to swim away from the eerie island. That's how the island was named - Klichen - from the word cry, click ... True, Ostash tell us that it could be so: the inhabitants of the town did not like that the Seligersky waterway passed by their island, and when merchant ships passed them Seliger's face was heard shouting and the merchants robbed, and their vessels were drowned.
Maybe the settlement would have remained a Klichin, but in 1393 it was not known why it had been plundered and burned by the Novgorodian army. The remaining residents had to move to the south and start all over again. And, as the legend says, there was among them a fisherman named Eustace, which in the ancient transcription sounds like "Ostashko". So it is, or not, but a new place began to be called Ostashkov. The locals called themselves nothing but the remains.
