Things to do: museums
Igarka is a town in Turukhansky District of Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, located 163km north of the Arctic Circle. Population: 16,000 (1970).HistoryIgarka was founded in 1929 as a sawmill and a timber-exporting port. It was granted town status in 1931. From 1949 to 1953, the Salekhard–Igarka Railway project made an unsuccessful attempt to connect Igarka to the Russian railway network at Salekhard, claiming the lives of thousands of Gulag prisoners.Administrative and municipal statusWithin the framework of administrative divisions, it is incorporated within Turukhansky District as the district town of Igarka. As a municipal division, the district town of Igarka is incorporated within Turukhansky Municipal District as Igarka Urban Settlement.TransportationThe town is a port on the Yenisei River and is located 673km away from the river's mouth.It is served by the Igarka Airport whose location across the river makes access difficult when the water is partly thawed: in winter one can drive across, and in summer there is a boat connection but in between those seasons crossing is difficult.
