Tobolsk

Once the official capital of Siberia, this now tiny town in the Tyumen Oblast region is rich in history, and boasts an impressive Kremlin as well as a fascinating old city center. The picturesque location is right next to the confluence of the Tobol and Irtysh Rivers, and the vast expanse of water can be seen from above by taking a trip up the Kremlin overlooking the town. Founded in the 16th century as a major city on the Great Siberian Road, Tobolsk’s significance – and ultimately size – began to decrease when the influential road started to take a more southerly route and skip the town altogether.

Still, Tobolsk’s appeal for travelers remains strong today, with the fortress-like Kremlin being the must-see attraction for the modest amount of travelers that make it this way. The town also boasts a number of worthwhile museums, a cathedral and various historical monuments depicting the long and fascinating history of the region.
