Zhivun Natural and Ethnographic Park-museum

Природно-этнографический парк-музей «Живун»
Туристско-информационный центр Ямало-Ненецкого автономного округа

Zhivun is a landmark of regional significance. There are seven wooden buildings built according to the traditions of the Northern Khanty people. They are all log cabins. The winter residential house of the Togachyovy family was built in the early 20th century, the barn with a lean-to belonging to T. Orlova — in 1979, the utility shop of Z. Kurtyamova — in the middle of the 20th century and a similar building belonging to the Togachyovy family built in the early 20th century. In addition, Zhivun includes three holy sheds: two belonging to V. Togachyov and G. Longortov were built in the 20th century and one belonging to V. Pystyrev — in 1923. A holy shed was a part of every Khanty settlement — this windowless low hut was a symbolic home for idol-protectors of the area.

Depending on the season, a relevant structure is installed in Zhivun — for instance, summer birch bark or winter fur tent.

National holidays are celebrated in the park-museum, such as «Vorna-Hutl», Raven's day and Lun-kutop-hutl — The day of the middle of the summer, which is surprisingly celebrated in early August.
