Abakan

The capital city of the Republic of Khakassia in southern central Russia, Abakan is a historic and beautiful destination, packed with fascinating architecture, telling the stories of its interesting past. Owing in part to its advantageous position at the confluence of the Yenisei and Abakan rivers, the area has been the site of various settlements and developing civilisations since the Bronze Age, including - in the first century BC - the Palace of Li Lin. Since receiving its current name in 1931, the town has been the cultural and trade center of the autonomous region of Khakassia.

Today, Abakan is a peaceful and friendly city, small enough to navigate on foot. Green parks filled with statues, memorials and fountains punctuate the streets. Theaters and Russian Orthodox churches stand proudly as architectural examples of the regional style and the town buzzes with homemade industry. Explore the city, feel the warm welcome of its inhabitants and get acquainted with the culture through its food, buildings and games.
