Visit Shemanovsky Yamal-Nenets District Museum and discover the traditions, customs and beliefs of the indigenous polar people.

However, the museum’s highlights are an extraordinary mammoth fossil and a 2,000-year-old bronze ring seen as evidence of a local bear cult.

Experience the Yamal Peninsula on a trek across the Romantik Glacier in the Rai-Iz Mountain Range. The six-kilometer hike passes through the verdant Engayu River valley, a dramatic landscape with cascading waterfalls and wild arctic reindeer before reaching the vast blue glacier.

See the Salekhard’s splendid monuments on a guided city walking tour. Step into the Arctic Zone at the Stela 66th Parallel, a futuristic glass sculpture marking the exact location of the Arctic Circle. Marvel at the bronze Reindeer Breeder sculpture made in honor of the Indigenous people of the north and get a photo with the life-size Mammoth Monument.

Discover the traditional lives of the Cossacks of Berezovsky County with a visit to the Obdorsky Ostrog open-air museum. Wander through the charming wooden village to gain an understanding of how life looked in 16th-century Salekhard. The historical complex rests at the junction of the Ob and Polui rivers.
