    Tyumen' Transportation

    The price was 500 RUB. I guess it was slightly higher than the standard price. I did not have no time to negotiate for price to be in time to the flight and I found only one taxi. 300-400 RUB would be reasonable. It took 30-40 minutes to the airport.

    The Abalak Tourist complex

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Sep 25, 2014

    The Abalak Tourist complex is located 30 km from Tobolsk on the high shore of the river Irtysh. Within the grounds of the complex is the Snowy Owl tavern which seats between 60 and 65 people; “Black Banya”, a summer bench. On the first floor of the tavern there is an old style restaurant made of cedar, with an inglenook fireplace, a fabulous bar, and an antique Russian oven.

    On the second floor of the tavern there are comfortable bedrooms with double beds and bathrooms to European sanitary engineering standard. There is a billiard hall with tables for “Russian Pyramid”.

    All the buildings are in the style of Siberian houses of the XVIth century. Cedar wood is used for internal and external finishing.

    Construction of a hotel complex for 100 people, VIP-cottages, a children’s town, and a fitness-center with a swimming pool is planned for Abalak.

    The mountain-ski lift works during the winter. The lift is 300-350 m., long; the height of the Babi Lift is 250m. We are glad to offer hire of mountain skis, and snow tubes for the children
