Tyumen is one of the great «smaller cities» of Russia – with a high living standard, lots of cultural options, good ecology, friendly people, and a large student population.
Tyumen is the capital of the vast Tyumen region, which stretches to the Arctic Ocean and has Russia’s biggest oil and gas reserves. The city itself is in the more temperate southern tip of the region, far from the oil fields in the frosty north. A mere 200 km east of the Ural mountain range, which marks the border between Europe and Asia, Tyumen is authentically Siberian in both its landscape and ambiance. Tyumen is located on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Ekaterinburg, Russia’s 4th largest city, and Tobolsk, the ancient capital of Siberia, are easily accessible weekend trips.
Tyumen’s population is 700 000 people and it is increasing rapidly, making it one of the fastest-growing cities in Russia. The city consistently ranks top in Russia for its standard of living, infrastructure, safety, and quality of medical care. It features a rich history, relaxed, friendly atmosphere and a compact pedestrian-friendly center with a unique 4-level embankment.
