I have lots of them I'm in the US and know very little about the area. I did some research and found a reference to "ice roads" what are these? I would like to hear anything about the city and the area.

    Hi, I think "ice road" is a free translation of the Russian word - "zimnik". It means - a road available only in winter time. Hopefully in Siberia winter lasts most part of the year. The area around Surgut (and Khanty-Mansijsk as well) - is deep marshes and taiga. So, it is almost impossible (or too expensive) to construct real road across it. If you look at the road map of Siberia you will find many of zimniks - mainly they run along rivers - as taiga is very deep. P.

    Thanks for the reply, are there many things to see and do in Khanty Mansiysk ? What do one bedroom apts rent for there? How much are Lada Nevas? How about food, what do milk, bread ext cost? How about eating out ? What are the clubs like what do things like beer and Vodka cost? How about a litre of diesel? I appreciate the information, have you been there often, did you like it? I'm also told to ask, from my friend are the women pretty and for myself are the men handsome? you might not have an answer for my question! Thank you again for your reply, maybe if we go we could meet you.

    Sorry, in Siberia I've been several times in Surgut, but not long time enough to answer so many questions ;-))) I've never been to Kh.-M. P.

    I have been to Khanty-Mansiysk.
    Not really a tourist destination unless you have special interest to draw you there (like I did).
    Most people go there for the oil-business.
