For the end of August I am considering visiting Novosibirsk. Despite the long journey, I prefer train to airplane because of the opportunity to see beautiful nature and the authentic Siberian way of life.
In this respect, any tips and recommendations are welcome - of course, especially from those of you who did it already. How did you manage with food and beverages during those 48 hours? How did you book your tickets: do you find www.tutu.ru reliable?
What about Novosibirsk? Is there any surroundings where you can find the typical Siberian landcape - endless plains, birch forests, lakes, etc.?
Thanks in advance!
I was thinking of flying into St Petersburg and then taking a train to Novosobirsk since the airfar there is around500 compared to almost 1,000 to fly into Novosobirsk. I would take the trans railway 3rd class. which is 178 or something like that. Thoughts?
new and alone in this N-sk
What to do...
My company is thinking of visiting Novosibirsk, however we need to be near to good medical facilities. How good are the hospitals in Novosibirsk? Are their many private ones? Does anyone have any opinions or stories to share about their experiences there?
How much should I pay for rent in Novosibirsk?
Seriously, How bad is the pollution in the region?
I saw another picture connected to VT that showed local water in a tub - is it really that bad in Novosibirsk?
Anyone knows the OVIR (visa and registry department) detail address and phone number in Novosibirsk?
I live in Toronto, Canada, I plan to go to Novosibirsk in 2 month to visit friends, I was told that my friend needs to get the certificate of invitation from OVIR, and I found this phone number :7-383-2-16-71-39 from the website, but this number is a wrong number, and my friend could not find this place.
Anyone who knows this place, please let me know as soon as possible?
Thank you so much.
There will be a pretty unique event in Novosibirsk on August 1, 2008. It won't be repeated very soon.
so hurry up and make sure your Russian visa, hotel reservation and CITY-STAR ticket is ready for action.
That may change our travel plans for this Summer.

My fiancee is from Novosibirsk but our engagement has met some very disapproving behaviour from mainly 2 of her previous friends - namely two of her ex-boyfriends friends who are loosely associated with and work for the mafia. She came to visit me for the summer as she is finishing university now and since her return to Novosibirsk she has been threatened by these men that they will take her to a bana and gang rape her then leave her naked in the forest and that if, as is planned i come to visit at christmas and new year they will hurt me badly. In terms of these people it means a good beating at least but probably worse, guns or knives included. As a result she feels it safer that we go somewhere else to spend time together, and she knows Novosibirsk life well. Having already had one incident with these people in the past I am asking, is it really safe for me to travel there for Christmas or should I let these men get what they want and drive our relationship to the desparation of finding somewhere where we will both be safe?
