Vanavara (Russian: Ванавара) is a rural locality (a selo) in Evenkiysky District of Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, located on the Podkamennaya Tunguska River at the mouth of the local Vanavarki River. Population: 3,153 (2010 Census);[1] 3,313 (2002 Census);[5] 5,697 (1989 Census).[6]

Vanavara is notable for being the nearest populated place to the site of the 1908 Tunguska event.

History[edit]

The locality as it exists today was founded in 1932 as a base for herders, hunters, and fishermen, as well as a location for a weather station.[7]

A plane crash occurred on September 26, 1994, when a plane flying from Krasnoyarsk to Tura had diverted to Vanavara Airport due to bad weather: on running out of fuel the crew then attempted an emergency landing on the bank of the Chamba River 41km from Vanavara centre. All twenty-four passengers and four crew died in the crash.[8]

On December 10, 2010, an explosion occurred in a boiler in the heating plant in Vanavara. A fireman was killed in the incident and heating was cut off for 720 houses, forcing the evacuation of many children to Krasnoyarsk.[9] Heating has since been fully restored.[10]

Transportation[edit]

The locality is served by Vanavara Airport.[11]
