Tobolsk Kremlin

Reviewed By FerTarran - Apucarana, PR

We visited the kremlin on a sunny Sunday and it looked really beautiful with its blue and golden domes. The view of the low quarter behind the kremlin is also very pretty. There's a square in front of it with souvenir and food stalls.

Abalakskiy Znamenskiy Monastery

Reviewed By Lidia8089 - Krasnodar, Russia

Сделали себе подарок на 8 марта вызвали такси к отелю и договорились с таксистом за 1200 рублей посетить Абалакский мужской монастырь, туристический комплекс Абалак и Иоанно - Введенский женский монастырь. Знаменский монастырь находится на высоком берегу Иртыша в живописном месте. В советский период на территории монастыря находился пересылочный лагерь НКВД. В 1990-х гг. Абалакский храмовый комплекс начинает действовать, в котором сейчас можно помолиться перед списком с чудотворной иконы.

The Governor's Palace Museum

Reviewed By Tinde_K - Moscow, Russia

Very interesting museum collections. The first big perk is the lovely viewpoint from the back of the building. Then you enter and there are many museum collections - on the history of Tobolsk, on Tsar Nicholas II. and his family, who were incarcerated in that very building for a time. I enjoyed the carved statuettes from mammoth tusk, they were adorable.

Tobolsk Historical and Architectural Museum Reserve

Reviewed By Tinde_K - Moscow, Russia

What I liked about Tobolsk Historical and Architectural Reserve is tha fact that it's been taken care of, nicely preserved, the white of the walls and buildings is shining and even though in a bit of a God-forsaken region, it's got all the neccessary infrastructure a tourist shall need. Great place to visit.

Yershova Square

Reviewed By kli59 - Moscow, Russia

Скульптурная группа героев сказки Ершова "Конёк-Горбунок" расположена около жилого дома на ул. С. Ремизова перед комплексом Тобольского Кремля. Вместе с прекрасным памятником автору сказки здесь есть смешной памятник царю, окунающему ногу в котёл с кипящей водой, фонтан в виде рыбы-кита с городом на спине (это ещё и мостик через фонтан), жар-птица и конечно же Иванушка-дурачок с Коньком-Горбунком. Скульптуры выполнены с большой душой, очень симпатичные, для детей одно удовольствие играть рядом с ними. Спасибо авторам проекта за это доброе чудо!

Prison Castle

Reviewed By Kirbyk - Virginia

This museum is adjacent to the Governor's palace but has a very different feel. It was a working prison until the 1990's and shows just how dreary life as a prisoner would have been. Except for religious services there seemed to be nothing humane about the prison. Didn't visit a gulag so I can't compare a work camp to a prison but both were probably pretty grim places

Хоть и являюсь атеистом, но с удовольствием посетил этот собор. Красота внутреннего убранства просто поражает. Колокольный звон завораживает. Не пожалел, что зашел...

This is a very small museum, and really only two rooms worked for me. But one of them is actually quite good, with memorable works by known Russian artists. Right across the street from the Tyumen Hotel.

Chamber Museum of Emperor Nicholas II

It is currently only one room, located in the former government house and the lady speaks only Russian. But we got a good impression of life of the last russian Tzar and his family. There are ambitious ideas to extent the museum.

Gostiny Dvor

Reviewed By 152048 - Tyumen, Russia

Идеальный вариант для тех, кто приехал посмотреть город или в командировку. Цены на уровне общегородских, но антураж, близость к достопримечательностям не сравнимы. Есть прекрасная комната для переговоров.
