Omsk

Founded in 1716, the secluded city of Omsk is now the second-largest in Western Siberia, located on the banks of the Irtysh and Om rivers. This historic city started out as a fortress on the left bank of the Om River to protect the Russian Empire against attacks from the Southern and Western borders. It has expanded exponentially over time, becoming the capital of Western Siberia and parts of Central Asia by the 1850s. In the late 1890s, the construction of the iconic Trans-Siberian Railway led to its rapid development, culminating in the ever-developing and enticing city it is today.

There are a number of popular attractions to be seen within Omsk’s expansive surroundings, hidden like gems around the city. Its many modest sights are a unique display of the different eras from an intriguing past, highlighting the city’s breadth and cultural distinctiveness. The original fortress site now makes a historical city center, where ancient stone buildings capture alluring memories. There are a multitude of cultural opportunities here with numerous museums, theaters and over 500 festivals, events and concerts are held here annually.
