Потенциал культурного наследия Тюменской области: официальные оценки и реальное состояние
The huge layer of unrevealed cultural heritage in the Tyumen region is considered. Tyumen region hosts about two thousand monuments of history and culture, included in the united federal register, and about 1300 more identified objects of cultural heritage. However, the identification of historical and cultural monuments is far from complete. Detailed field expeditionary studies, conducted in all districts of the region during 2017–2020, made it possible to identify about a thousand more historical monuments with signs of cultural heritage.
Examples of objects of traditional rural wooden architecture (both residential estates and outbuildings), decoration of rural wooden houses, stone construction in the village (retail shops, residential merchant houses) are given. The preserved historical layout of rural settlements has been regarded as a special kind of heritage objects. Examples of industrial architecture in rural settlements, architecture of railway stations and station complexes are shown. Several dozens of rural settlements can be distinguished on the territory of the region, where, according to official figures, there are either no cultural heritage objects at all, or there are 1–2 objects, but in fact there are up to 15–20 interesting architectural structures, the historical layout and cultural landscape are preserved. These settlements may become real reference points of the future cultural framework of the region, a good basis for attracting tourists and excursionists.
