Chebarkul (Russian: Чебарку́ль) is a town in Chelyabinsk Oblast, Russia, located on the shores of Chebarkul Lake 78 km (48 mi) west of Chelyabinsk. Population: 42,844 (2010 Census);[2] 47,144 (2002 Census);[4] 50,062 (1989 Census).[5]

Etymology[edit]

The name of the city is originated from Bashkir/Tatar words and means "a beautiful lake".[citation needed]

History[edit]

Founded in 1736 as a fortress on the border between Russian and Bashkir lands, it later grew into a large Cossack stanitsa.[citation needed] The fortress was founded with the permission of Bashkir Tarkhan Taymas Shaimov, who was the owner of these lands.

Town status was granted to it on October 25, 1951.[citation needed]
