    As best we can tell, this monument sits north and above the site of the old city. It was created recently to memorialize the Tartar capital and peoples who were conquered by Ermak 420 years ago.

    Locals have made some unofficial Russian orthodox burial plots in the area.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tobolsk is about the merger of the Irtysh river and Tobol rivers. The Irtysh river runs yellow, the Tobol clear,
    Locals head to the Irtysh river that runs by town for swimming. It has sandy beaches and a fair current if you don't find a quit bay.

    The water is mildly warm and pleasant in mid-summer.

    Fish at Railway Station

    by Baikal_Dream Updated Aug 3, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Even if you go through Tobolsk city by train, do not miss chance to buy different kind of smocked fish at the railway station.
    The best are muksun fish (Mook - soon) and sterlet fish (ster - lyad'). All fish is fresh enough, as it is from Tobol river or around.

    Choose your fish !
