About Gorod.Tsaritsyn Font Family

The general idea: it is a hanger in a tsar palace on which all crowned persons have hung up their crowns before going to bed. A few jokers' caps are hanging also on some hooks of the hanger.

Release: in the form of "gorod.Tsaritsyn" font with four styles. Symbols of Normal and Bold styles have the cut strokes (sans serif), symbols of Italic styles have no an inclination, but have the sharp counterstrokes (serifs) at the ends of vertical strokes and at the corners for the greater expressiveness.

We have to explain the meaning of word "gorod". It is a "city of" in Russian.

The city of Tsaritsyn was founded in 1589 as a fortress for protection of Russian lands against attacks of Mongol-Tatar armies. The first outpost was built on the steep turn of the river Volga on the island opposite the place where the river Tsaritsa flows into it. But the outpost was burnt at the beginning of XVII century and then was built up anew now on the bank of the Volga not far from the Mamaev Hill that became afterwards "the main height of Russia" (we'll explain this while our new font "gorod.Volgograd" get ready in its describing article).

As the Russian borderline moved forward to the East and to the South Tsaritsyn was losing its importance as an outpost but developed as a transport junction and industrial center. This city was a witness of the "senseless and ruthless" (as Alexander Pushkin wrote on his "The Captain Daughter" narrative) peasants uprisings under the leadership of Stepan Rasin (1670) and Emelian Pugatchov (1774), and at the beginning of XVIII century it was the center of Cossack self-goverment during Bulavin's revolt. In the Civil War 1918-1919 Tsaritsyn city became the region of severe battles between the Red Army of Workers and Peasants and the nobleman White Guard. During the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 years it was completely destroyed. It is known as the most eastern place which fascist armies reached during the Second World War.

In 1925 Tsaritsyn was renamed to Stalingrad, since 1961 it has had the new name - Volgograd. Now it is a modern city which was built up anew after war, it is situated on 100 kilometers of the Volga bank, has population about 1 million people.

About FontCity

All the fonts we offer contain 220 symbols each: all the Russian and English lower-case and capital letters, 10 figures, number sign (both # and ’), punctuation marks (a full stop, a comma, exclamation and question marks, a dash and others), signs of mathematics (a plus, a minus, signs of multiplication and division, signs of equality and root and so on), symbols of some currencies (currency, sterling, dollar, cent, yen, euro) and other symbols. We adhered to the Windows-1251 symbols encoding table (Cyrillic) but made some alterations. For example, we placed the symbols of multiplication and division to other code cells and put a few additional for Win-1251 signs in the unused cells. The complete encoding table of all of our fonts are available on "". Our fonts are named after Russian cities and have prefix "gorod" that means "city of" in Russian. It helps You to sort our fonts conveniently in your fonts list. In each describing article we have tried to explain the reason urged us to corresponding name. Unfortunately, selling our products in USA, we can't use the clear and natural variant spelling "city of" as a part of their names to avoid a possible intellectual property rights infringement. We hope You'll enjoy its Russian analogue "gorod". Designing the slanted (Italic) styles we proceeded from the fact that decorative fonts are rarely used for typing the large volumes of texts, and the majority of editors can change any signs from the plain styles into the slanted ones working with the short phrases (an article title, signboard and so on and so forth). That's why the symbols of Italic styles in our fonts have no real slant of the vertical strokes. Instead of it, Italic styles are the variants of Normal and Bold styles which we consider to be more interesting and reflecting more perfectly the general idea contained in each corresponding font. For example, in "Moskva" font the slanted styles symbols have the strokes with the counterstrokes (serifs), in "Samara"-Italic typeface symbols are "dancing": the characters are moved sideways relatively to the baseline and are inclined in a chaotic order. We did our best to do all the featuring of our fonts: hinting, bearing, kerning (up to 5.000 pairs) and others. We tested the efficiency of the fonts in many Windows applications: CorelDraw!®, Aldus PageMaker®, Adobe PhotoShop®, Adobe Illustrator®, Microsoft Word®, Microsoft FrontPage Express® and others. The tests showed bright results. Our fonts are represented both in TrueType and PostScript formats. We can change encoding, substitute some symbols, design your national alphabet letters and do other changes according to your wish. To do this we need the particular description of the required encoding, detailed description of the symbols you need and some samples drawn in various typefaces. We will be able to define the cost and time necessary to carry out the work only on getting your requirements and drawing up a contract or an agreement. The ready fonts' cost depends on the amount of styles and a maximum number of users specified in the applicable receipt. One-user license costs $15 for font about 1 style, $20 for two styles, $30 - for four ones and $50 - for eight styles.
