    I arrived in Omsk via the Trans Siberian Railroad November 21, 2005. It was nearly 9 am but the sun had not appeared yet. As we approached the river the fog rose to greet us and covered everything with a hore frost. There were ice flows in the river but there was also open water.

    These apartment building where in quite good condition even thought they were much older than the typical Khrushchev Aparments dating from the middle 50's. I was living within two blocks of the river, so the trees were covered with the hore frost from the river fog as well.

    The kitchen area shows the remarkable efficiency in the use of space, the cupboard for dishes is located right over the sink, it has no bottom in it, instead it has the drain rack, store and dry your dishes at the same time in the same soace, so ther e is one step less handling!

    The Achairsky Monastery

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Achairsky Monastery is an impressive riverside convent 55 km south of Omsk. We took a taxi from the city that takes around 40mins to get there. It was founded in 1905 and the monastery was restored in early 1990s as a convent.
