More than 1000 years before Micky Mouse Russia had already a Mouse City. As the legend tells somewhen 900 AC a Russian prince slept at the banks of Volga under a tree. While sleeping a poisonous snake came and in the very last moment a mouse woke him up. He killed the snake and founded at that place a town. And because his life was saved by a mouse he named the town Myshkin.
