Tomsk

What started out as a fortress on the banks of Tom River, the city of Tomsk is now a historical Siberian landmark. At over 400 years of age, it is one of the oldest towns in the region, with charming and ornate buildings decorating its streets. Since the 1960s it has been recognized as the ‘cultural capital of Siberia’ since a number of impressionable writers and artists were invited to take up residence here.

The city has an ‘otherworldly’ feel, renowned for its elaborate ‘gingerbread’-style designs on ornate wooden buildings, as well as its captivating art scene. A visit to Tomsk provides rare insights into Siberia’s rich heritage, away from the striking cathedrals and picture-perfect scenery that Russia has become synonymous. It maintains a dignified ambiance with its ensemble of traditional wooden houses, culture-rich museums and enchanting atmosphere brought about from the many universities here.
