According to the legend in the place of the present Murzitsy village Tatars used to live, ancestors of those very Mongol-Tatars who had come here with khan Batyi's hordes. It was some Murza who ruled here but he and his people were killed by Ivan the Terrible who travelled along the Sura river to Kazan.
People say it was terrible, this water still brings bones to the bank. Since then the village became the Russian one and it is today. But the unique holiday "Bathing the Horse" allegedly remained from those ancient Tatar times cause horses are the big love of all nomads.
