A Three-meter Pancake will be Baked in Yalutorovsk

A three-meter pancake will be baked with the help of a huge frying pan during the Shrovetide festivities on February 18 in Yalutorovsk, Tyumen region, according to the website of the city administration.

      As noted in the message that if the pancake does not break while being turned, Yalutorovsk will be able to get into the Book of Records of Russia.

      On the same day, guests of the holiday will   taste tea from a two-meter samovar weighing almost 250 kg and containing about 200 liters.

      "This is the largest operating samovar in Russia," the press release says.


The Tyumen Region, 2144km from Moscow, stretches all the way from Kazakhstan to the Arctic Ocean and occupies the largest part of the Western Siberian valley. It ranks 3rd largest region after Sakha Republic and Krasnoyarsk Territory. The region includes 2 RF legal entities – Khanty-Mansyisk and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Areas. The Tyumen region is bound by Kazakhstan, Komi Republic, Krrasnoyarsk Territory, Sverdlovsk, Kurgan, Omsk, Tomsk and Archangelsk Regions.The climate of the region is continental, with frequent weather shifts. Average winter temperature is –17C (bare minimum temperature registered in the region -49C), average summer temperature is +18C (bare maximum temperature +38C).


In order to protect Siberian territories from frequent Tatar's attacks, the powerful Ural merchants Stroganovs sent the Cossack army under Yermak's direction to fight against Tatars. Yermak’s campaign opened the way to Russian colonization of Siberia.


The first Russian fort in Siberia was founded here in 1586. It later became the first Russian city in Siberia and was called Tyumen. Since 1590s Tobolsk founded in 1587 becomes the center of Siberia. Tobolsk and Tyumen started to grow rapidly and already in the 17th century they are equal to major European cities of the time. Starting from the end of the 17th century new stone buildings appear in Tobolsk and Tyumen. Tobolsk was the only Siberian city with its own Kremlin. The history of the Western Siberia has one peculiarity – it served as a deportation place for unwanted citizens and statesmen. Gannibal, Menshikov, protopope Avvakum, Decembrists Annenkov, Muraviev, Pushchin etc. were exiled to Siberia in the18-19th centuries. Located on the juncture of important trade ways between East and West, Tyumen became and industrial and commercial center, a kind of 'gates to Siberia'. In the 19th century the city started to develop due to the construction of the Trans-Siberian Railway.The Tyumen Region is the place of birth of many famous Russians – chemist Mendeleev, poet Yershov, and Rasputin, the cult figure of Russian aristocracy in the early 1900s.
