A City with the "Happiness Index"
Tyumen is the center of the Tyumen Region, the first European city of Siberia, which has been the most comfortable city for life among Russian cities by a “happiness index” rank three years in a row.
Tyumen invites tourists from all over the world to get acquainted with its rich historical and cultural legacy. Most tourists prefer to visit the historical center, churches, and the former outskirts of the first Russian city in Siberia. Other travelers arrive in Tyumen to enjoy swimming in amazing hot springs, as it`s a real pleasure to dive into hot water in cold weather outside.
The embankment of the city is the main tour facility, which opens stunning views. Near the embankment, there are many historical and architectural sights of Tyumen: the complex of the Trinity Monastery, the church of Michael Archangel, the Znamensky Cathedral, and a lot of other interesting sites.
