Tynda (Russian: Ты́нда TYHN-duh) is a large town in Amur Oblast. Known as the "Capital of the Baikal-Amur Mainline," as it was intended to be a major hub, Tynda is at the junction with the partially complete Amur-Yakutsk Mainline, which will link the BAM with the planned terminus of Yakutsk.


The center of Tynda

Tynda is Evenki's word related to "flat river bank" or a "place for grazing of deers". The town has a river with the same name, separating the town from the railway station. The 16-floor appartment houses in the center and wooden barracks in the suburbs are two contrasts left over from Communist times.

US Wenatchee is Tynda's sister-city.
