Novosibirsk Sights and Landmarks Guide, Russia

The best thing about choosing Novosibirsk as your holiday destination is that you can easily make trips of one day inside the region, allowing you to take all your time to relive the past of this beautiful historical place. Before arriving to the actual city, you come across a special and delightful landscape that can be observed as far as only a few kilometers from town. The nature looks deserted and still holds something unique. No matter where you look, you can see either massifs that “guard” the surroundings or mud lakes and salt deposits that have made this area famous. Specialists say about Novosibirsk’s landscape that it is almost “all of West Siberia in miniature”.

If this strange scenery charms your senses, you can also find out more information about Barnaul Sights,one of the nearby cities, with the most to offer.
