Krasnoyarsk Krai (Russian: Красноя́рский край, tr. Krasnoyarsky kray; IPA: [krəsnɐˈjarskʲɪj ˈkraj]) is a federal subject of Russia (a krai), with its administrative centre in the city of Krasnoyarsk—the third-largest city in Siberia (after Novosibirsk and Omsk). Krasnoyarsk Krai is the largest krai in the Russian Federation, the second largest federal subject (after the Sakha Republic).

The krai lies in the middle of Siberia, and occupies nearly half of the Siberian Federal District, almost splitting it in half, stretching 3,000 km from the Sayan Mountains in the south along the Yenisei River to the Taymyr Peninsula in the north. It borders (counting clockwise from the sea) the Sakha Republic, Irkutsk Oblast, the Tuva Republic, the Republic of Khakassia, and Kemerovo, Tomsk, and Tyumen Oblasts, and the Kara Sea and Laptev Sea of the Arctic Ocean in the north.
