Tyumen was the first Russian settlement in Siberia. Founded in 1586 to support Russia eastward expansion the city has remained one of the most important industrial and economic centers east of the Ural Mountains. Located at the junction of several important trade routes and with easy access to navigable waterways, Tyumen rapidly developed from a small military settlement to a large commercial and industrial city. The central part of Old Tyumen retains many historic buildings from throughout the city history.

The river floods during the snow melting season in the spring. The spring flood usually peaks in the second half of May, when the river becomes 8-10 times wider than during the late-summer low water season. The city is protected from flooding by a dike which can withstand floods up to 8 meters high. The highest ever flood water level in Tyumen was 9.15 m (30.02 ft), recorded in 1979. More recently, in 2007, a water level of 7.76 was recorded. In the spring 2005, a flood higher than the critical 8 m (26.25 ft) mark was expected, but did not appear.
