Things to do: sightseeing, museums, nightlife
Kyzyl is the capital city of the Tuva Republic, Russia. The name of the city means "red" in Tuvan . Population:GeographyKyzyl claims to be located exactly in the geographical center of Asia. Whether these coordinates are in fact the center of Asia is disputed (e.g., Ürümqi in China makes a similar claim). However, there is a monument labelled "Center of Asia" in English, Russian, and Tuvan which asserts this claim. Tos-Bulak is the area of open fields and mineral springs which lies immediately south of Kyzyl.Kyzyl is located where the Yenisei River meets the Maly Yenisey River to form the Verkhny Yenisey. Most development is south of the river and follows the curves of the river, with the highest development centered where the two headstreams of the Yenisei, the Bii-Khem, and the Kaa-Khem, meet. A monument was built in 1964 on the river bank to mark this.HistoryIt was founded in 1914 as Belotsarsk . In 1918, it was renamed Khem-Beldyr, and in 1926 it was given its present name. In September 2004, Kyzyl celebrated its 90th anniversary as a city.Administrative and municipal statusKyzyl is the capital of the republic. Within the framework of administrative divisions, it is incorporated as the city under republic jurisdiction (urban okrug) of Kyzyl—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts (kozhuuns). As a municipal division, the city under republic jurisdiction (urban okrug) of Kyzyl is incorporated as Kyzyl Urban Okrug.
