The city lies on Tom river which flows past the city center. There is river traffic and and river station. You may want to check out whether there are boat services along the river.
This chapel has been rebuilt for the 400 years city jubilee in 2004. It sits prominently on Ploshad Lenina and looks like a cake, it's so cute.
This cathedral dates back to 1784. It is easy to find next to the Lenin monument. Unfortunately, I haven't been inside.
In Oktober 2004 this church was under renovation. The only thing that was finished was the belfry which was painted in amazing colours.
I was rather surprised to see a catholic church here in Tomsk. It dates back to 1833 and is built in Italian style.
View from Resurrection Hill
There is a fantastic view from the top of the museum tower. It's well worth going up there. You will have a 360 degree panorama over the city center, the wooden houses and to the river Tom river.
I must admit that I didn't visit the museum which has a separte entrance fee. I was more attracted by the wooden tower on its top which cost 10 roubles in 2004.
Originally there was Tomsk fortress on this hill in 1604, when the town was founded. Today, you find the rebuilt wooden "Golden Gate". Take a close look at the dome in the middle.
