DAY 1

*** GENERAL: Khanty-Mansiysk Description (Click below link for CityMap)

The area of Khanty-Mansiysk first appears in Russian records in the XI-th century. Nevertheless, Ugric people – Khanty and Mansi – are considered to inhabit this territory long before, as they moved from Yugra to the west, finally settling in the region of present-day Hungary and Finland, in the IX-th century. Khanty-Mansiysk is to break all the stereotypes of northern cities. Known to many as hidden deep in Siberia, “far far away”, the city still can be reached by air, and it will take you just 2,5 hours to get there from Moscow. The administrative centre of Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug (KhMAO) is on the same latitude as St. Petersburg is, and it is definitely not the Arctic Circle. The Okrug was established in 1930 as the National District of the Ostyaks and Voguls with the centre in a work settlement Ostyako-Vogulsk later renamed Khanty-Mansiysk. And “Yugra” became not only a convenient and easy-to remember name of the Okrug, but rather an original symbol, attractive to both inhabitants and their guests. Yugra is located on the West Siberian Plain extending from west to east for 1,400 km, from the Ural Mountains along the Ob River. This territory has a shape that has been likened frequently to a bear looking towards boundless fields of Siberia and Far East. The city’s population is 67,8 thousand people. This ecologically clear region with fresh and pure air is on the other hand one of the most economically developed areas of Russia. Contemporary airport of international class (located just in a few km from the city, serves about 350 passengers per hour), road network, convenient hotels of Khanty-Mansiysk are the reflection of Yugra’s “economic miracle”. Except international airport, the city has ferry service and railway station (3 hours drive from the city). Today, when lots of companies look for an unusual location for corporate events and conferences Khanty-Mansiysk can provide creative and imaginative ideas and locate a venue to suit. Yugra offers an excellent environment for conferences, meetings and incentive events. Traditional culture of Ugric peoples – Khanty and Mansi - can bring a bit of extra spice to any event. Finally, today Khanty-Mansiysk became a world-renowned sports capital of Western Siberia. The world-class biathlon trail system annually attracts hundreds of biathlon lovers. Whether the one is looking for spa resort, congress center, a unique ethnographic, cultural and sports area within Russia, they will find it all in Khanty-Mansiysk.
