About region

About region

Our region is the second largest federal subject after the Sakha Republic: its area is 2,339,700 square kilometers (903,400 square miles),which is 13% of the country's total territory.

The region is also known under different names such as Siberia along the Yenisei River, Central Siberia and Middle Siberia, which are often mentioned in the historical, geographical and geological literature.

The region length from north to south is 2800 km. The length from west to east varies: at the widest part (70º N) it is 1250 km, at the narrowest (51º N) up to 200 km. The territory of Krasnoyarsk Krai is quite heterogeneous in the natural, economic, ethnic relations and its density.

The climate is strongly continental with large temperature variations during the year (from - 40 °C to + 45 °C).The vast territory makes it evenmore diverse. The northern and central districts of the region are different with long winter and short hot summer in the central part and chill ones in the north, which lasts about 50 days. These districts have frequentprecipitation. The south of the region has moderately severe snowless winter and warm summer (about 120 days).

The territory of Krasnoyarsk Krai experiences conditions of three climate belts: Arctic, Subarctic, and moderate. Therefore, there are not only northern and southern zones with their climate characteristics, but also western and eastern ones separated by the valley of the Yenisei River.

The average temperature in January is −36 °C (−33 °F) in the north and −18 °C (0 °F) in the south.
