Named after the Taymyria Peninsula on the Arctic Sea, Taymyria (Russian: Таймы́рский автоно́мный о́круг tigh-MYHR-skee uhv-tah-NOHM-nyh OH-krook) is an impressively remote, vast region in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia.

Although over half of Taymyria's population is ethnic Russian, about one quarter of the population is comprised indigenous Siberians, including Dolgans, Nenets, Nganasans, Evenks, and Enets. Taymyria's lone incursion into American pop culture occurred when parts of the American film White Nights took place in Norilsk.
