Khantia-Mansia

Khantia-Mansia, or Yugra is an autonomous district of Tyumen Oblast in the Russian Federation. The people native of the region are the Khanty and the Mansi, known collectively as Ob Ugric, whose languages are the closest relatives to Hungarian.

Khantia-Mansia has an area of 523,100 km², but the area is sparsely populated with a total population of around 1.5 million. The capital city is Khanty-Mansiysk, with around 40,000 inhabitants, but the largest cities of the region are Surgut (~300,000) and Nizhnevartovsk (~250,000).

The local languages, Khanty and Mansi are co-official in this region along with Russian.

The district was established on December 10, 1930, as the Autonomous district of the Ostyaks and Voguls (Остя́ко-Вогу́льский автоно́мный о́круг). In 1940 it was renamed the Autonomous district of the Khants and Mansis (Ха́нты-Манси́йский автоно́мный о́круг).

Principal rivers in this region are Ob and its tributary Irtysh.
