Etymology

The etymology of the city's name is still subject to scholarly dispute. Even if Kirchenburg means "City of churches" some claim that the name is not the original one from the nowadays known as Alstad. When the Blanasnik familiy arrived at the city, they started to transform its urbanism, in the style of Ulethan big capitals with parks, theatres and churches. The number of churches was extremely high and the city changed its name. Other claim that the original name is Kirjkburg am Abdan, "City of the church in the Abdan" with more supporters, that defend the idea of the Alstad as the original city, placed near the Abdan river. Sainkt Michel Cathedral could be the highest church in that times, getting an special mention on the city's name.
