Geografie[eedit | eedit soorce]

The destrict is elongatit frae sooth tae north, wi a protrusion in the northeast. The main watterwey athin the destrict limits is the Sukhona River, which crosses it frae soothwast tae northeast. Amaist aw o the destrict lees in the basin o the Sukhona and its tributars, includin the Tolshma frae the richt an the Tsaryova an Yedenga from the left. Minor areas in the north of the destrict belang tae the basins o the Vaga an Kuloy Rivers. In pairticular, Lake Sonduzhskoye, bi far the biggest lake in the destrict, is the source o the Kuloy. Minor auries in the wast o the destrict belang tae the basin o the Syamzhena, a tributar o the Kubena. Some rivers in the sooth o the district drain intae the Unzha an the Kostroma an thus, eventually, intae the Volga. The divide atween the basins o the Northern Dvina an the Volga, which crosses the soothren pairt o the destrict, is marked bi the wastren pairt o the Northren Ridge hill chain.

Considerable auries athin the destrict are covered bi coniferous forests.

Swamps cover up tae 8% o the aurie o the destrict.[11] The biggest ane is the Bolshaya Chist Swamp locatit atween the glens o the Sukhona an the Tolshma an shared bi Totemsky an Mezhdurechensky Destricts an bi Kostroma Oblast. The aurie the swamp is aboot 200 square kilometers (77 sq mi) an it is maistly treeless. Bolshaya Chist is the lairgest aurie swamp in Vologda Oblast.[12] Ither swamps are locatit in the north o the destrict, in pairticular in the glens o the Kuloy an the Uftyuga. Lake Sonduzhskoye is surroondit bi swamps.

History[eedit | eedit soorce]

Totma wis first mentioned in the chronicles in 1137. It wis foondit bi Novgorodians, who used the Sukhona River as the main waterwey leadin tae the north an eventually tae the White Sea. In the 13t century, salt production stairtit aroond Totma, an the toun, which wis oreeginally locatit dounstream o the current place, wis relocatit. In 1539-1541, Totma wis plundered bi Kazan Tatars, efter which a fortress wis built. In the 16t century, Totma wis ane o the maist prosperous touns o the Roushie North, due tae its salt production an trade. In 1554, monk Feodosy Sumorin foondit the Transfiguration Monastery.[13] In the 17t an 18t centuries, Totma wis visitit bi Peter the Great three times, which wis rather exceptional given the remote location o the toun. In the 18t century, Totma wis ane o the main centres o the sploration o an the trade wi Alaska. In pairticular, Ivan Kuskov, the first admeenistrator o Fort Ross, a Roushie fortress in Californie, wis a native of Totma.

In the course o the admeenistrative reform carriet oot in 1708 bi Peter the Great, the aurie wis includit intae Archangelgorod Govrenorate. Totma wis explicitly mentioned as ane o the touns includit in the govrenorate. In 1780, the govrenorate wis abolisht an transformit intae Vologda Viceryalty; simultaneously, Totemsky Uyezd wis establisht. The viceryalty wis abolisht in 1796, an the pairt o it which includit Totma became Vologda Govrenorate.

On 15 Julie 1929, several govrenorates, includin Vologda Govrenorate, wur mergit intae Northren Krai, an the uyezds wur abolisht. Insteid, Totemsky Destrict wi the admeenistrative centre in the toun o Totma wis establisht as a pairt o Vologda Okrug. It includit pairts o the umwhile aurie o Totemsky Uyezd. In the follaein years, the first-level admeenistrative diveesion o Roushie kept chyngin. In 1936, Northren Krai wis transformit intae Northren Oblast. In 1937, Northren Oblast itsel wis split intae Arkhangelsk Oblast an Vologda Oblast. Totemsky Destrict remained in Vologda Oblast iver syne.

On 15 Julie 1929, Tolshmensky Destrict wi the admeenistrative centre in the selo o Krasnoye[14] wis establisht an aw. On 30 Julie 1931, it wis abolisht an dividit atween Shuysky an Totemsky destricts. Syamzhensky Destrict, which wis establisht on 15 Julie 1929 an aw, wis likewise abolisht on 30 Julie 1931 an dividit atween Totemsky an Kharovsky Destricts. On 25 Januar 1935, Syamzhensky Destrict wis re-establisht.[8]

Transportation[eedit | eedit soorce]

Paved roads connect Totma wi Vologda via Kadnikov (soothwast), Veliky Ustyug via Nyuksenitsa (northeast), an Nikolsk via Imeni Babushkina (east). Afore the road atween Totma an Veliky Ustyug alang the Sukhona wis completit in the first decade o the 2000s, the anerlie connection atween the touns wis via Nikolsk.

The anerlie railroad in the destrict is the Monza Railroad, built for timber transport an operatit bi the timber production authorities, which runs alang the border o Vologda an Kostroma Oblasts. The railroad crosses Totemsky Destrict frae wast tae east. Plans tae extend it further east tae Nikolsk wur niver realisit.[16]
