Heart of Russia
Sometimes referred to as the "heart of Russia" because of its heart-shaped territory, Tyumen Oblast is considered one of the country's most multicultural regions with 36 recognized ethnic groups. Spreading over a large part of northern Siberia on the border between European and Asian cultures, the region is difficult to access in some parts, so places to visit are limited. That said, the region boasts a number of old constructions, historical complexes, museums, and architectural monuments, as well as hundreds of archeological findings, including ancient settlements and burial mounds. One of its villages introduced the world to the most notorious character in Russian history, Grigory Rasputin. After some cultural and historical sightseeing, explore the more active options, such as alpine skiing, fishing in lakes, ecological tourism, or a visit to one of the many sanatoriums with medicinal mud and mineral water.
