City Khanty-Mansiysk, the capital of the  Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug-Ugra, is situated in West Siberia on the river Irtysh, just 15 km from the confluence with the river Ob. It is 1076 km by road from Tyumen and 2759 km from Moscow . The town is built on seven pine clad hills and resembles Scandinavian resorts.

Khanty-Mansiysk is a town with a unique, even for the 21st century, social infrastructure. According to the decision of the authorities, all industrial production was moved out of the town. The surrounding taiga forest is a national park of Siberia . There is a rare combination of urbanism and ecological purity . The taiga spreads for hundreds of kilometers in all directions from the town.

Nowadays Khanty-Mansiysk is not only the center of the oil region but it is also becoming the center of business activity, sport and national culture.
