Tobolsk (Тобольск)

Widely considered the most historic and picturesque of Siberia's cities, Tobolsk is a small kremlin town originally founded by Cossacks in the mid-16th century. With its well-preserved fortress and grandly faded churches, it is divided between a kremlin-dominated upper town and a simpler, down-at-heel lower town along the wide Irtysh River.
