Khanty-Mansy autonomous district – Yugra is one of the richest regions of the Russian Federation. Surgut is the biggest city of the district, people used to call the city as the oil capital of Russia. Indeed, there are 3 biggest Russian oil-and-gas companies: Surgutneftegas, Gazprom and Tyumenenergo. But of course the life of people in this Siberian city is not focused just on the work.
