Deep Roots Of Siberia

Today we’ll go to a remote city in Siberia, Yugorsk, to meet its ancient people who had lived there much before the Russians came to the place.

Russia is a rich and vast country. Migration of Russian people from the central part of the country behind the Ural mountains started several centuries ago. Many new cities and villages covered the vast space between the Ural mountains till the Far East. Some places were abandoned later, others are still increasing in size, continue their development and even have museums of their own.

At the museum of Yugorsk you will many pictures depicting animals that are widely presented in local forests.

Arctic hare.

Angry and scary wolf.

Red fox.

Otter, swan, and hawks.

Wood grouses can often be found here and are even depicted on the emblem of Yugorsk city.

The Khanty and Mansi are two nationalities that had inhabited the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area for a long time.

Archaeologists are very interested in examining events of those times.

The people survived due to hunting and gathering. In case there was a river nearby, they often went fishing.

    Great photos. Some of the photos remind me of Finnish Sami (in other countries too, not only Finland).

    Misha! Awesome. He’s a much better Olympic mascot than those two angry, creepy, one-eyed robots of London!
