A legend is spread that the samovar was brought to Russia by Peter I, but the documents say that it appeared half a century after the death of the last Russian tsar. Production began after the Tula industrialist Demidov went to the Urals, where, with local blacksmiths, he forged the first self-heating structure. Later, she was found among Demidov property. Years later, the Suksun samovar plant and the Suksun form will appear here - in the form of an antique amphora.

77 years after the first experiments of Demidov, the Lisitsyn brothers opened the first stream production in Tula, therefore Tula is considered the birthplace of Russian samovars.
