The third-most populous city in Russia might be a destination you should consider. Established in 1893, Novosibirsk has once held the crown of the fastest growing city in the world and has been rapidly developing ever since.

Can you believe that for this reason it has even been included in the Guinness Book of Records? The contrast between the man-made expansion and forested areas, small rivers, and lakes lying adjacent to the city, meets you right in the middle for a perfect sightseeing experience.

The colorful city is full of cultural and historical monuments to put on your Novosibirsk itinerary, such as the Eternal Flame, commemorating the people fighting The Great Patriotic War during World War II or the Chapel of St. Nicholas, situated in the exact geographical center of the former Soviet Union.

While on the Novosibirsk tour you should also visit Novosibirsk-Glavny (the largest rail station east of the Urals) and the Stokvartirny House, "the house with one hundred apartments" (an architectural monument, built by the famous architect A.D. Kryachkov).

The list goes on but exploring the city has never been so easy since the urban lifestyle is greatly intertwined with the beauty of nature. Take a stroll through one of the city parks, visit the Novosibirsk Zoo or put the tick on your bucket list after seeing a world-class ballet performance at the Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theatre.

Novosibirsk travel is a fusion of the metropolitan vibe, cultural heritage, and lively nature, only adding to the charm and uniqueness of the city.

  • Novosibirsk-Glavny (The Railway station.) Before World War II this was the largest railway station building in the former USSR. Today it is still the largest in Siberia, and one of the largest in Russia. Having been planned in the constructionism style, it was altered to the neoclassical style during its construction. The unusual monumental building style is an example of the architecture of the 1930s, one of the symbols of Novosibirsk, and the main point of the Trans-Siberian Railway!
  • The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral was built in 1897 (one of the first stone-buildings of the city), but by 1937 was closed. In 1988 it was decided to give the Cathedral back to the Russian Orthodox church, and by 1992 it was fully reconstructed.
  • In 1915, in honor of the 300-year anniversary of the Romanov Dynasty, The Chapel of St. Nikolai was built and served as a symbolic center of the Russian Empire. During the years of communism the chapel was destroyed; and later became the site for a Stalin monument, which has since been destroyed after the exposure of the Stalin personality cult. The Chapel was restored for the celebration of the city's 100-year anniversary and as before it bears the name of St. Nikolai.
  • The Voznesensky Cathedral is the main Novosibirsk Orthodox Cathedral, and was built in 1914. Since then it has been reconstructed several times. It has retained its present look since the Orthodox Jubilee - Russian Orthodox Church Millennium.
  • Zoological Garden (Novosibirsk ZOO)  is situated in a beautiful forested park. The Novosibirsk Zoo keeps 4000 animals of 399 species.
  • There used to be towns built near fortresses, near monasteries, near factories, ports, and even town-museums, but Akademgorodok (Academic Town) is the first town of science! Within its territory there are 35 research institutes, Novosibirsk State University (one of the top three Russian Universities), apartment houses and cottages, Dom Uchonyh (Scientists' House) - a social center of Akademgorodok, which hosts a library (100 000 volumes), a picture gallery, lecture hall and a fine concert hall. It is one of the few towns in the world built right in the middle of a forest. This Siberian town, located on the shore of the man-made sea Ob (a reservoir) has preserved its majestic birch and pine forest abounding in birds and squirrels.
  • Don't forget to visit the marvelous Novosibirsk Botanical Garden in Akademgorodok! Having been found in 1946, now it is the leading botanical institution in Siberia and the Far East.
