Tyumen is the largest city and the administrative center of Tyumen Oblast, Russia. The city is located on the Tura River.

The Tyumen area, originally part of the Siberia Khanate, was annexed to Russia by the Cossack hetman Yermak Timofeyevich in 1585, and on July 29, 1586, Tsar Feodor I ordered two regional commanders, Vasily Borisov Sukin and Ivan Myasnoy, to construct a fortress on the site of the former Tatar town of Chimgi-Tura (also sometimes known as Tyumen).

Tyumen has a humid continental climate with warm, somewhat humid summers and long, cold winters.

Tyumen is an important service center for the gas and oil industries in Russia. Due to its advantageous location at the crossing of the Motor, Rail, Water and Air way and its moderate climate Tyumen was an ideal base town for servicing the oil and gas industry of the West Siberia. As the result today Tyumen is the center of industry, science, culture, education and medicine.

Many world level oil and gas companies such as Gazprom, LUKoil and Gazpromneft, TNK-BP, Shell have their representative offices in Tyumen. Tyumen is one of the Russian towns which have its own Technopark.

There are three universities and several tens of colleges in Tyumen. Tyumen State Oil and Gas University is the largest university in the Tyumen region of Russia.

It has 7 schools, including construction, social sciences, engineering, and the Institute of Management and Business.

Tyumen has a range of entertainment possibilities for all ages. There are numerous museums and art galleries in Tyumen. The best known are the Tyumen Museum of Local Lore and the Tyumen Fine Art Gallery which were merged last year by local government decision. Some of the Tyumen Museums: Tyumen Museum of Local Lore (Several exhibition halls); Museum of Geology; Museum of the Fine Arts; Museum of Kolokolnikov estate (Several exhibition halls); House of Merchant Masharov and others.
