Named after the Taymyria Peninsula on the Arctic Sea, Taymyria (Russian: Таймы́рский автоно́мный о́круг tigh-MYHR-skee uhv-tah-NOHM-nyh OH-krook) is an impressively remote, vast region in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia.



Other destinations[edit]

  • Bolshevik Island
  • Putoransky Nature Reserve — a UNESCO World Heritage site encompassing subarctic and arctic ecosystems in an isolated mountain range, including pristine taiga, forest tundra, tundra and arctic desert systems, as well as untouched cold-water lake and river systems. A major reindeer migration route crosses the property, which represents an exceptional, large-scale and increasingly rare natural phenomenon.


Although over half of Taymyria's population is ethnic Russian, about one quarter of the population is comprised indigenous Siberians, including Dolgans, Nenets, Nganasans, Evenks, and Enets. Taymyria's lone incursion into American pop culture occured when parts of the American film White Nights took place in Norilsk.
