Welcome to Novosibirsk

With a population of over 1.6 million people, Novosibirsk is the third most populous city in Russia.
The city was founded in 1893 as a transport hub. The city was originally called Novonikolayevsk (Новониколаевск), in honor of both Saint Nicholas and of the reigning Tsar Nicholas II. It became a large industrial centre during the Stalin period. In 1962, it became the first city in the world to reach a population of 1 million people within 70 years of being founded.

Top  Attractions

Novosibirsk might be Russia’s third-largest city, but you wouldn’t know it. The city centre is compact and – thanks to lots of parks and tree-lined avenues – it has a quiet, green-fingered air to it, which makes it an ideal city for strolling about. And there’s a lot here worth strolling for, including a slew of quirky museums and monuments, some impressive galleries, a good theatre and entertainment scene and some memorable places to eat. All this means it’s hard not to like Novosibirsk and, sitting as it does on the main rail line, it makes a worthwhile Trans-Siberian pit stop. You can also jump off from here to architecturally splendid Tomsk, some 4½ hours away by bus.

The majority of the population lives in apartment buildings and private houses are rare.
Novosibirsk grew into a beautiful place with booming cultural life (after the fall of Soviet Union). Russia’s third largest city has embraced its status as capital of Siberia and opened its doors to the world. A slew of museums and monuments, a relaxed big-city vibe, a pulsating nightlife and a wealth of great accommodation are available to the visitors. Most of the people under 40 speak English.
