It’s Vyatka, not Kirov!

Vyatka? Is this the city? And how far is Vyatka from Kirov? The second question may sound paradoxical because Vyatka and Kirov are the same city. It’s Kirov now. Unfortunately, our city Vyatka was renamed in Kirov in 1934. It’s sad for our beloved city. I should say that Sergei Mironovich Kirov (after whom the city was renamed) had never been to Vyatka, but he was only born in Vyatka Province. Honestly, Sergei Mironovich had taken the surname ‘Kirov’ as a party nickname in honor of the Persian King Cyrus.
And what about Vyatka? There are plenty of cities and towns named Kirov, and Vyatka is the only one. Everyone knows us as Vyatka people, and no one can remember as Kirovites.
I was asked:
-Where are you from?
-I am From Kirov.
It’s a little surprised. Then I was offered different options about the location, and most of them are wrong. Then I explain:
- This is former Vyatka.
- AAAAAAAAAAA!!! Wow!
And almost everyone knows what to say about Vyatka but not about Kirov! Kirov. It’s faceless, boring, and Vyatka is beautiful, gentle, warm and kind. Vyatka is 638, and the city was originally feminine, and it is its soul. I am from Vyatka! I am for Vyatka! That sounds well and with a smile!
