    internet center sign

    Favorite thing: There is an internet center just off Vokzalnaya magistral. Coming from Ploshad Lenina it's the first alley on your right. It's downstairs. When I was there, I only had trouble it was never working properly, so I gave up. Let's hope that they improved by now.

    Favorite thing: The best interne in town! The whole night, from 10 PM to 7 AM will cost you only 100 rubles. They also serve soups (Chinese) and drinks, including chai and coffee, for a few rubles. You can even sleep on the table. There is a toilet too. It is best to spend the night there than in any hotel, where you will pay about 1000 rubles per night if you are a foreigner and do not know Russian language.

    Novosibirsk Regional Studies Museum
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: Toujours sur Krasnij prospekt, au 23, vous pourrez passer de longs moments au Musée Régional d'Etudes Naturelles. Le museum est logé dans un superbe bâtiment de briques rouge et blanc, au style remarquable (et reconnaissable de loin).
    Le bâtiment à été construit après qu'un incendie ait détruit une partie de la ville. C'était la première batisse en brique et en pierre. C'était, à cette époque, le magasin de la ville, où l'on stockait le blé et les vivres pour la population.
    Lorsque je suis allé visiter le musée, à l'entrée, j'ai fait "comme si j'étais un russe". Nous avons payé le prix normal. Après une dizaine de minutes, une dame est venue nous trouver, pour nous expliquer que, pour les étrangers, le prix est plus élevé... on nous avait écouté parler (les anciennes manies venues du temps du KGB ne sont jamais très loin...)

    Still on Krasnij prospekt, at 23, you will be able to go from long moments by the Regional Museum of Natural studies. The museum is lodged in a superb building of bricks red and white, to the remarkable style (and recognizable from afar).
    The building to been constructed after a fire destroyed a part of the city. It was the first building made of brick and in stone. It was, at this time, the store of the city, where one stocked wheat and supplies for the population.
    When I went to visit the museum, to the entry, I made " as if I was a Russian ". We paid for the normal price. After about ten minutes, a lady came to find us, to explain us that, for the strangers, the price is raised more... one had listened us to speak (the former crazes come in the days of the KGB are never very far...)

    Annonces

    Favorite thing: Les gens ont pris l'habitude de coller leurs petites annonces sur les portes des immeubles, ou, en ville, près des stations de métro. Sur ce mur, tout s'achète et tout se vends !

    People took the habit to glue their classified ads on the doors of the buildings, or, in city, close to the stations of subway. On this wall, all buys itself and all sell himself!

    Nature of West Siberia

    by Anya_D Updated Feb 12, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Tyumen Region is considered to be North, because of its severe climate and hard living conditions. In previous decades people went to live and work in Siberia because of good salaries and special 'nothern' coefficient for hardship: they could make good money there.

    http://iclub.sibintek.ru/floodlarge/hlc10.jpg

    This is what you will see from the plane in spring during flood. Thousands of rivers, creeks, lakes and ponds get together into one huge ocean. All Siberian rivers flow to the north. During Soviet years there was a crazy project to turn the rivers to the south to irrigate Kazakhstan arable lands. It was never implemented, so the mankind has fortunately avoided one more ecological catastrophy.

    The land is mostly covered by bogs and low coniferous forests known as taiga. It is not as rich and thick as in South Siberia. The taiga is very beautiful though, lots of berries, mushrooms, fish in the rivers, bear and hare in the forests. Summer is short but relatively warm, maybe even hot, winters are known as -50 below zero centigrade

    The University Prospect

    by Klod5 Updated Nov 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Avenue de l'universit��

    Favorite thing: C'est la plus large rue d'Akademgorodok et la seule avec un terre-plein central : une pelouse qui sépare la circulation des les voies opposés. Il a été peut être supposé que ce serait une des principales routes dans la ville, et elle évite les zones résidentielles. Cependant, c'est une des rues les plus à l'écart d'Akademgorodok et la circulation y dépasse rarement une vingtaine de voitures par heure. Je pense que, en fait, la perspective de l'avenue a été conçue pour souligner l'importance et grandeur de l'Institut de Physiques Nucléaires.

    It is the largest street of Akademgorodok and the only one with a central roadbed : a lawn that separates the circulation of them sees them opposite. It was can be supposed that it would be one of the main roads in the city, and it avoids the residential zones. However, it is one of the streets the more aside from Akademgorodok and the circulation passes about twenty cars there rarely per hour. I think that, in fact, the Prospect has been conceived to underline the importance and size of the Nuclear Physics institute.

    In Novs, the biggest monument is fron of Opera and ballet theatre.

    In the main street of Akademgorodock, a scene of the current life, two times that cross themselves (and that don't meet often ever).

    Aleksander Nevskij cathedral

    Favorite thing: Toujours sur Krasnij prospekt (Avenue Rouge), l'avenue principale de la ville, la belle cathédrale Alexander Nevsky, construite en 1899, deux ans après la fin de la construction du pont. Je crois que c'est le plus ancien monument religieux de la ville.

    Still on Krasnij prospekt (Red Avenue), the main avenue of the city, the beautiful Alexander Nevsky cathedral, constructed in 1899, two years after the end of the construction of the bridge. I believe that it is the most former religious monument of the city.
