The very first city that was built in Siberia was Tyumen. It was founded in 1586 on the site where an ancient settlement was once located at the mouth of the Tyumenka River. The name was taken from the Turkic 'tyumen', which meant 'lowland, lower reaches'. Since the beginning of the 17th century, the city has become a major transport interchange that connects Russian cities with China.

Handicrafts were highly developed in Tyumen. Craftsmen who specialized in blacksmith production, soap making, wood products were known throughout Siberia. The city achieved particular popularity thanks to the art of leather dressing. Products were not only sold in our country, but also transported abroad.

The first steamboat launched in 1838 and the opening of the Tyumen-Yekaterinburg railway line in 1885 made the city an important economic center of Russia. At this time, new production facilities were organized and old ones expanded. The first brewery is famous for its drinks, which are receiving prestigious awards and recognition in Europe. Shipbuilding companies are supplying new steamships. In 1903, there were 191 on the rivers. By the beginning of the 20th century, the population increased to 30,000 people. There were 117 factories and plants in the city, including tanneries, machine tools, furniture, footwear, fur, woodworking, canning.

During the Great Patriotic War, important enterprises were evacuated to the city, where the Tyumen people produced military equipment, clothing and food for the front. Tens of thousands of townspeople left to fight the fascists. In 1944, the Tyumen region was formed. The city became its administrative center.

Further development is inextricably linked with the discovery of oil fields. From the beginning of the 60s of the last century, their active development began. At the same time, a civil aviation department was created, thanks to which thousands of specialists from all over the country were delivered to the most inaccessible places in the taiga and tundra. New river routes open up additional transport opportunities.

Today Tyumen is the oil and gas capital of our country. In addition, it is a large economic, cultural, scientific and sports center of Russia.

Monument to Railwaymen of the Front and Rear

Attraction rating (Tyumen): 5.0

Monument to Railwaymen of the Front and Rear

The first place is occupied by a memorable place where the townspeople come to bow and lay bouquets of flowers. The obelisk was erected in September 2015 near the railway station on the square at the entrance to the Zheleznodorozhnik recreation center. This majestic monument is a tribute to the memory of all railway workers, men and women, who worked in the rear and fought in the battles of World War II. It was created from real rails along which trains went, bringing evacuated people, wounded soldiers to Siberia and taking ammunition, weapons, food to the front.

The monument weighs about 60 tons and is installed on a granite base. The total of rail fragments is 3000 pieces. Their total length is 1 km. The highest point is 6 meters. In the middle of the arch hangs a bell with the faces of Alexander Nevsky, Sergius of Radonezh, Dmitry Donskoy, George the Victorious. The volumetric full-length bas-reliefs depict a front-line soldier, a veteran with a carnation, a woman, teenagers and men – workers in the rear. An interesting detail: in the left pylon, every seventh rail is turned over, and this symbolizes about every 7 resident of our country who died in the Second World War.

The monument was created by sculptors and architects from Yekaterinburg and Tyumen. For perpetuating the history of Russian railways, the authors were awarded a personal watch by the President of Russian Railways.

It was installed on June 22 to mark the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. The idea of ​​creation belonged to school graduates of 1941-1945. It was brought to life by the Tyumen people – architect B. Zhuchenko and sculptor N. Raspopov.

The monument consists of sculptures of two young people. A young man in a soldier's uniform with a rifle at the ready is escorted to the front by a barefoot girl. This image has a special meaning: the war began suddenly and no one expected it.

MONUMENT TO THE HOME WORKERS

The third place in the rating is deservedly taken by the Tyumen attraction, which is located in the park 'To Workers of the Rear'. The idea to erect the monument originated in 2008.

As a result, the 'Olympic' square became optimal, which was soon renamed and named as a memorial. The composition is installed on a pedestal. On it there are bronze sculptures of a woman worker of the plant, a disabled WWII, an engineer and a teenager holding signs with the inscriptions “Everything for the front” and “Everything for victory!” Four steps leading upward symbolize 4 years of war.

The monument, erected in 2010, pays tribute to the memory of all Tyumen people who worked in factories during the war, supplying the front with everything necessary for a speedy victory over fascism.

When all the work was completed, the parishioners saw the amazing architecture and decorations that made the Znamensky Cathedral the center of Orthodoxy in the Tyumen region.

With the advent of Soviet power, the services continued. But in 1930 the temple was closed and converted into a sports hall. Three years later it was handed over to the believers again. During the Great Patriotic War, services did not stop. In 2003, the cathedral underwent a global reconstruction. Crosses and domes were replaced.
