Tobolsk is one of the oldest cities in the Urals and Siberia, the birthplace of many famous people, including the chemist Dmitry Mendeleyev, painter Vasily Perov, composer Alexander Alyabyev and many others. It is also the place where Decembrists Ivan Annenkov, Wilhelm Kuchelbecker, Alexander Muravyov, Mikhail Fonvizin, as well as the writer Alexander Radishchev, the statesman Mikhail Speransky, Russia’s first portrait painter Ivan Nikitin, were exiled. Tobolsk is also where the deposed Emperor Nicholas II and his family lived in exile from August 13, 1917 until April 13, 1918.
