Why is it named “Denisov” (Denis’s)?
Long time ago tsar Peter the Great traveled along the Russian North. His way to Sankt-Petersburg was along the Syamozero lake. The tsar procession stopped in a small village on the shore of the lake. Locals were very nervous when they found out what a great guest they had and decided to dine and wine him. They laid the table with a lot of meals where the main treat was fish from Syamozero – zander and water-belly.
Peter the Great tasted their food for a long time but soon enough the locals understood that the tsar was unsatisfied with something! The food turned out not to have enough salt in it! The tsar asked for salt and everyone became worried and Peter heard the answer in Karelian language: “Ei Ssola!” what meant “no salt”.
The tsar got angry. But then a young man stepped out of the crowd and gave him something. It was salt! Peter continued his meal with pleasure, thanked everybody for tasteful meals and warm stay, and gave presents to the young man. He asked the man: “What is your name and where did you get salt?” At first the man was shy but then he told that his name was Deonisiy, he often went to forest and collected mushrooms and berries, and that he loved fishing. And that he had a precious place on the cape (“myis”) of the Syamozero lake and he had a log cabin there. It was there where he noticed white stones which were salty.
Later on the place was named after the young man – “Deonisov” or simply “Denisov”, and the place where it happened was called “Essoila”!
