Novosibirsk

Siberian Chicago

Situated in Siberia's southwestern portion, Novosibirsk developed into a major urban center in the last decade of the 19th century, when it became a convenient pit stop for railway travelers making the epic trans-Siberian journey. Stretching along the banks of the Ob River, the vast city serves as Siberia's unofficial capital, a major industrial and transportation center boosted by its rich coal and mineral deposits. Filled with museums and monuments, Novosibirsk also boasts energetic nightlife and a diverse restaurant scene, known for offering classic specialties and outstanding wines from around the world. Despite its size, Novosibirsk features a manageable city center, famous for containing Russia's largest opera house. With our world travel planner, Russia vacations can be built around trips to Novosibirsk and other destinations in Russia.
