Plan excursions to 1 day
As you can see, the attractions are many. Above are only the most famous and popular, but in reality the city is replete with a variety of interesting locations and buildings. So to see the city fully for the day thoroughly not possible.
To start suggest you at the centre of the city, where Tarski on the street are the famous gates of Tarski.
Suggest not only to look at the gate that were previously used to log in to Ostrog, and through which passed the exiled Dostoevsky (in fact, these gates are new and are similar to when something is standing relatively close to the current location) but under them hop on one foot.
Among the hawks there is a sign that the move under the gate this way, combined with a hidden desire allows you to achieve your goals.
Of course, you should make plans to see the greatest number of sights and catch of the day. In order to consolidate support for the higher started can go from the gate to the International side of the street, where is located the Cathedral of the assumption. The architectural structure is incredibly beautiful and can be considered a kind of musthave in terms of tourism.
By car in Russia. Useful tips and advice for motorists is here.
To go to the arboretum – it is an interesting option. Moreover, the visit is not a lot of money, and a variety of plants there is really huge.
However, not everyone likes plants, and the Park is not open every day. Another interesting option is the walking Irtysh embankment, almost in any weather, there's a lot of newlyweds (near the registry office and the newlyweds are photographed on the waterfront) and overall pleasant atmosphere.
By the way it walk on this promenade is the best option for sightseeing as there are many historic buildings.
Special attention is given to the area of the square. 30-letiya VLKSM, but rather a tree that grows between this square and the building of the water Utility. There is a gorgeous white willow, which was planted back in 1884. Now there's a giant plant more than ten meters in height and over five meters in girth, is worth a visit of the giant.
If we talk about the giants, but you need to remember about the Jubilee bridgethat connects the different banks Omi. You can complete the tour by watching the splendid panorama of city and river port of the bridge, or go back to the Uspensky Cathedral, which in the evening takes on a gorgeous look, thanks to the backlight.
Tourism in winter
In General, winter is not the best period to visit the city. Themselves the hawks in this period I prefer not to walk around the streets, but only to run errands or stay home. Not surprisingly, in Omsk in winter, very cold and Hiking do not deliver virtually any pleasure.
Nevertheless, Omsk is a city developed culturally and there are a considerable number of institutions which are interesting to visit. When the street is cold, you can enjoy any cultural event or to study in detail the exposition of a Museum.
Many will get pleasure from visiting Omsk academic drama theatre, located on Lenin street in the eighth house. The repertoire is very diverse from classics to modern productions. There are often a variety of theatrical festivals and has its own Museum.
If the repertoire of this theatre do not have to taste, there are alternatives. For example, Music theatre. Sporty spectacles can always go to the arena Omsk, where he played local hockey club Avangard and other sports teams.
In the Irtysh embankment is the House of Kolchak, which is called the mansion and Batiushkov. Anyway, the building for a decent amount of time was the main in town. Now there is the Museum, which allows you to learn a lot about the history of the Civil war and white movement.
Those who are interested in history, I advise you to go to the historical Museumwhere a huge collection of exhibits. By the way, this Museum is one of the oldest not only in Siberia but all over Russia and founded in 1878.
Art lovers are advised to visit museums that direction.For example, the fine arts museums Liberova, Vrubel, Belova. It should be noted literature of Dostoyevsky Museum and the unique Museum of the Omsk Art.
As you can see there are lots of interesting, and only those options will be enough for a few intense travel days of winter.
