What is Tomsk known for?


green nature

before paying. Just in case — there is '''zero tolerance toward drugs''', even the softest ones — so take extreme care. Sleep There are several of hostels in the city. One of them is Taiga-hostel (Nikitina street, 56) is a cozy place close to the center of Tomsk. It is easy to get from here to all the universities and remarkable sights. There are two beautiful and clean bedrooms — for 6 and for 4 guests — made in 'green nature' style. There are all the facilities in Taiga-hostel — fridge, microwave, wi fi, lock box, dinner delivery, breakfast etc. The price of stay in hotels is usually lower than in bigger cities, except for places like Hotel Magistrat (Lenina square) or hotel Oktyabr'skaya. The other is 8 floor hostel (Dzerzhinsky street, 56). It is a comfortable place just in the historical center of Tomsk. A common room and shared kitchen, different types of rooms including private room for 2 guests and the other 10 bed and two 4 bed rooms are all for the best of its guests. It takes about 5 minutes to get from the hostel to the bus railway station. The hostel is also located close to the Universities, entertainment centers, trade centers, banks and medical institutions. All necessary facilities are included to the price of the places. There are also plenty of decent and clean little private hotels converted from apartments throughout the city but they are hardly accessible for a foreigner who doesn't know Russian, so ask you Russian-speaking friends or colleagues — they can easily find one for you. Do not expect the hotel staff anywhere except the luxiry hotels to speak anything but Russian, and learn some key phrases before staying. Stay safe Tomsk is a pretty safe place in terms of crime, especially if you stay within the downtown, don't look too freaky and don't show off with a lot of cash. Still, there are some useful rules: You are obliged to '''carry your passport''' with you — though cases when you are actually asked for it are ''extremely'' rare. '''Don't take walks outside downtown at night''' — it is better and faster to use a taxi and watch the night city from a car. Also, try to steer clear of intoxicated people wherever you meet them. '''Don't stop private taxis on the street''' — there are plenty of reliable taxi companies in the city that can be easily called. Ask your guide or a Russian speaking friend for a phone number. '''Try not to drink on the streets''' — or at least not to show it to local policemen — they are usually quite tolerant and in most cases will just tell you to stop drinking, still there may be accidents. '''Call your Russian-speaking friends''', your country's representative or your guide immediately if you think you may be in trouble with the police or anyone else. Go next You can buy e-tickets anywhere through the Internet, and you can just pick them up in the airport before your flight, as everywhere else. Also, always '''be in the airport 2 hours before your flight'''. Call a taxi to the airport, the railway or the bus station '''the evening before''' or at least a couple of hours before the departure and agree on the time — the taxi service is extremely popular with the city's inhabitants and there are a couple of times during the day when it is difficult to get one. To get out of the country travel first to Moscow or Novosibirsk and then wherever you like. Wikipedia:Tomsk Commons:Category:Tomsk

The Institute also had an evening school and a correspondence school. Wikipedia:Tomsk Commons:Category:Tomsk


vocal music

and the town is really beautiful May through September. '''Climb''' the Voskersenskaya hill and go to the city viewing point — see the view the 19th century fire fighters watched everyday for signs of fire. '''Listen''' to the church choir in the Epiphany Cathedral or to the Tomsk State University capella performing at what was the University chapel — a must hear for everyone who is interested in vocal music. '''Try''' the Siberian Pancakes (Sibirskie Bliny) with a lot of different stuffings (sold at outlets throughout downtown). '''Have''' a ride on the Ferris wheel in the Town Park. '''Attend''' a Russian Premier Football League game with the local team called Tom — a great chance to see Russia's best football teams and feel the heat among Tomsk football fans supporting their favourite team. '''Ask''' your local friends or guides for other things to do — there is a lot more. Buy A lot of beautiful souvenirs made from birch bark — from hair brushes to bottles and baskets and maps of Russia. These are characteristic of Western Siberia and you will not get them anywhere else. Also try local souvenir shops conveniently located at the airport and the main railway station for some other traditional local gifts. Eat The cuisine bears little, if any, difference from what you can try in Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk and any other city in the region. Local foods like pelmeni or bliny (pancakes) can be found in practically any restaurant around. The Coffee House and Food Master cafes on the Lenina Avenue are European-oriented and you can eat quite a decent pizza or lasagna in the latter. An average meal there costs from 6 to €10 per person excluding wine. Want something more traditional? Go to the Korchma u Tarasa (there are several in the downtown) — originally a Ukrainian place, it features a lot of traditional Russian and Siberian cuisine. Zhili-Byli is a Russian-style place resembling a peasant's hut with local pop-music and waiters (and waitresses!) dressed appropriately. The service in both places can be painfully slow, especially on weekend evenings but you will be rewarded with good and relatively cheap dinner (around 450 rubles excluding alcohol that is quite affordable as well). For a high-class dinner go to Vechny Zov, Slavyansky Bazar or Parmezan — for a price that starts at around 1360 rubles plus wine you will get a high-standard European or Russian meal including traditional Russian and local delicacies. Chefs are often invited from France, Italy, etc., so European quality is guaranteed — at a European rate. There are also a lot of smaller places offering good meals for relatively low prices — ask whoever reads Russian to browse local Internet or look through the papers. Also, don't expect the restaurant staff to speak anything but Russian (except the most expensive places). Drink ...everywhere! If it is a '''flat or house party''' — go take a couple of large bottles of Nefiltroff — the local non-filtered beer — cheap, tasty and cheerful! Local vodka is also pretty cheap and considerably well-done. Many supermarkets and small shops are open 24 7 so it's never late to go take another one, though be careful not to walk through the city at night if you are intoxicated. But according to the law they can't sell spirit during a night. That's why you will have problem to buy spirit after 11pm ( in some shops after 10pm ). With beer there is not that problem. There are a lot of '''places to go''' in the downtown, from coffeeshops to pubs to night clubs — Teatro, Fakel, Trash&Glam, Siberian Pub, Pivlyandia (Beerland), and U Kruegera (Krueger's) just to name a few. If someone want to drink beer Krueger's (У Крюгера) is the best choice. Most of the bars offer an international set of beers and other drinks for a decent (sometimes really low) price. Nightclubs usually have pretty high entrance fees to screen out the poorest part of the population causing the most unrest, so be ready for outrageous €25-€30 in the most 'fashionable' places to about €6-€7 in the less high profile ones. Sometimes some places take no entrance fees but add €5-€7 to your bill for live music. '''Drinks''' usually start at €2 for a beer or €4 for a cocktail. Vodka's pretty cheap so enjoy your stay. Bartenders and waiters may speak English, especially in places like Siberian Pub where the small expat crowd gathers. The risk of being cheated is scarce, especially in the more respectable places — still take a look at your bill before paying.

Tomsk was one of the first cities in Russia to gain access to the Internet, which became available in the early 1990s owing to grants received by universities and scientific cooperation. Culture thumb Tomsk Museum for Regional Studies and the Organ Hall of the Philharmonic (File:Tomsk Lenin 75.jpg) thumb Example of wood carving in Tomsk wooden architecture (File:Shishkov House Window Carving.jpg) Tomsk has many local cultural institutions including several drama theaters as well as a children's theater and a puppet theater. Major concert venues in the city include the Conservatory Concert hall and the Tomsk Palace of Sport. The city also has cultural centers dedicated to German (Germany), Polish (Poland) and Tatar languages and culture. One of the city's prominent theaters was destroyed in an act of terrorism in 1905. The Korolevsky Theater (built in 1884–85) was being used by a group of communist revolutionaries when the theater was attacked and set on fire by members of the Black Hundred, a hard-line nationalist organization. Those who escaped the flames were gunned down by Black Hundred members waiting outside the theater. Estimates put the number of casualties between 200 and 1000. There are a number of museums in Tomsk devoted to various subjects, most notably art, local history and wood carving. There is also a Museum of Oppression, housed in a former KGB dungeon. Tomsk State University has a number of small museums with exhibits on archaeology, paleontology, zoology, as well as a herbarium and a botanical garden As in many other cities in the former Soviet Union, the revolutionary government destroyed a number of old churches in the city including two that had existed since the 17th century. However, Tomsk managed to save some of its churches by transforming them into machine shops, warehouses, archives, and even residential buildings. Since the end of the communist era some of the churches have been renovated and returned to their congregations. Tomsk is well known for its intricate "gingerbread" decoration of traditional wooden houses in the area. However, the number of old homes in this style is decreasing due to redevelopment or some of them catching fire, as the structures have little to no fire protection. Trud (Labor) Stadium (Trud Stadium (Tomsk)), in central Tomsk is the base for matches with the FC Tom Tomsk, the city's professional soccer club. The team's 2004 promotion to the Russian Premier League gave local fans a chance to see some of the nation's best teams play at the city's own stadium. Tomsk has many local media outlets including the ''TV2 (TV2 (Tomsk))'' television station, the radio stations ''Radio Siberia'' and ''Echo of Moscow in Tomsk (Echo of Moscow)'' along with several newspapers (''Tomskii Vestnik, Tomskaya Nedelya, Krasnoye Znamya'' and ''Vechernii Tomsk''). In April 2006 Tomsk received international media attention as the venue of a major summit on economic cooperation, held in the city between Russian President (President of Russia) Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor (Chancellor of Germany (Federal Republic)) Angela Merkel. Tomsk was the name given by children's author Elizabeth Beresford to one of her fictional characters The Wombles, all of whom are named after places.
