Surgut Things to Do
Surgut was founded at the turn of the XVI century by order of Tsar Feodor I, being then one of the oldest Russians cities in Siberia. But in Surgut I saw a modern town with large and modern avenues. Only a monument in a central square remembered the first Russians that founded the town.Related to:

Favorite thing: Though Surgut is almost on the same parallel as Helsinki, weather in Surgut is not very pleasant. First time I was there in December 1994 and -29'C did not seem something strange for me. Moreover air was dry and it was less cold than in Moscow with -10.
But my last trip in April 2004 showed that Surgut is really in Siberia. It was -12'C on April 26th!!! snowdrifts everywhere and not a single evidence of spring ;(
Locals told me that this happens in 20% of time. If winter is relatively warm - spring could start in late May.
