Tyumen Will Host Delphic Games

The Fifteenth Youth Delphic Games of Russia will be held in Tyumen Oblast from 22 to 27 April 2016. It is planned that the competition will be attended by more than 2500 young artists from 85 constituent entities of the Russian Federation.

      The competition will be held in 29 categories of folk, classical and modern art; the jury will include about 100 prominent artists, as the National Delphic Council of Russia reports. The first meeting of the Organizing Committee has been already held by this moment. Elimination rounds are being held in some regions of the Russian Federation.

      The Delphic Games are supported by the Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, and at the international level – by UNESCO, the European Commission, the Council of Europe and PACE.

      There is no reliable information on the origin of the city's name. Tatar legends say that 'tumen' means 'ten thousand'. Some scientists believe that the city was originally called 'chemgen' that meant 'the city on the way'. Others say, the name of Tyumen consists of two words: 'tu' and 'myana', which means 'my property'. Yet, there's still no official version that could explain the origin of the city's name. Tyumen was to defend Russian settlements from frequent attacks of nomads. Later, Tyumen became an important transfer point on the trading way to Middle Asia, Persia, and China. Modern Tyumen is an important industrial, scientific and cultural center of Russia. The city's main attraction is a unique combination of traits of a modern city and an ancient capital of Siberia.
