Taymyria

From Academic Kids

Taymyria (Таймырский автономный округ) is an autonomous district (okrug) of Krasnoyarsk Krai in the Russian Federation. It is named after the Taymyr Peninsula. It is also called Dolgan-Nenets Autonomous District (Долгано-Ненецкий автономный округ), by the name of the indigenous people, Dolgans and Nenetses.

With an area of 862,100 km² (ranked 4th) and a population of slightly less than 40,000 (2002 census), Taymyria is one of the least densely populated areas of Russia. Dudinka, with more than half of Taymyria's inhabitants, is the administrative centre.

Following a referendum on the issue held on April 17 2005, the districts of Taymyria and Evenkia will be merged into the Krasnoyarsk krai on January 1 2007.
