(Russian: Новосибирск) is Russia's third largest city, after Moscow and Saint Petersburg, and the
administrative center of Novosibirsk Oblast. It is also the largest city in Siberia and the administrative center of Siberian Federal District, in the southwest of which it is located.
It was founded in 1893 as the future site of the Trans-Siberian Railway bridge crossing the great Siberian river Ob. Its importance further increased early in the 20th century with the completion of the Turkestan-Siberia Railway, connecting Novosibirsk to Central Asia and the Caspian Sea.

Novosibirsk. Area of scientific tourism
Regional administration prepares the project of law "On state support of development of tourist industry in the Novosibirsk area". This document is foreseen by active participation of obladministracii in the process of control after activity of all of subjects of tourist industry. The conduct of register is planned, where annually all of information will be included about activity of existent tourist firms. It must provide quality of tourist service and not allow the reiteration of the Philippine events. We will remind that 2 months back Novosibirsk turfirma "Sickle and to To" sent tourists on Philippines, not paying internal flights and residence in the Philippine hotels. However, by a question about control a bill is not limited, officials threatened on greater: Novosibirsk, in their opinion, must become nearly tourist Mekkoy. Three directions of priority development of objects of tourism are selected in the project of law: objects of rest and prophylactic treatment (area of Obskogo of storage pool, lakes Karachi, Swan, Bitter), cultural and historical places and area of scientific tourism (city Novosibirsk, Novosibirsk Akademvillage). Does not that in town there are quite a bit places, interesnykh from point of culture and history, cause doubts, however how sufficiently them, to talk about authentic tourist potential? The correspondent of NEW broke a head long, what sights can poradovat' Novosibirsk of the guests, and remembered nothing, except for Theater of opera and ballet, and also famous Altaian mummy, kept in the museum of Institute of archaeology and ethnography closed on repair . In addition, the strange feeling is abandoned by combination of words "area of scientific tourism" - this verbal mutant drove to confusion of not only correspondent of NEWS but also turoperatorov of Novosibirsk and Moscow. Questioning of operators of the Novosibirsk tourist agencies resulted in predictable results. It was arrived by a person turbiznes does not bring in Novosibirsk and environs, especially popular places which "pilgrims" flow down to, it is not also for us. "All of excursions on a city are counted on one day, - turoperator of firm "Al'tair" comments. - It, as a rule, survey excursion on a city and Akademgorodku. Well, as a variant, it is possible to go in Kolyvan' - there, where the first fish-forks were built. Scientific tourism. Museum of institute of geology.. There is yet "Museum of a sun in Akademvillage"". That "Museum of a sun" is in Akademgorodke is a fact. A few rooms in basement of house in the street of Ivanova, in the microregion of "Sch". Mainly fretted heathen solnyshki of modern production. Exhibits are 200-300 copies. The employee of turagentstva "Olimpiya-rayzen" reported after long meditations, that in Novosibirsk there are theaters, museums, circus and zoo. It seems, for the cultural and historical tourist center of it however enough it is. However, can there be a tourist value of Novosibirsk unknown only to our townspeople? Correspondent.Decided a NEW to check up it, putting a question Sergey Romashko, to the director general of Moscow turagentstva "Dolphin", to one of the largest companies in Russia, specialized on internal tourist business. "I try to remember people which for the last 2-3 spoke to us, to visit Novosibirsk with tourist aims, but does not recall something, - Sergey Romashko talks. - Of scientific tourism I never heard, in turbiznese such concept does not exist". Concepts such is not indeed present. On the example of Novosibirsk it is possible to name one "scientific tourism": allowed on a stream, debugged mechanism of excursions in the institutes of Akademgorodka. About expedience of such approach we asked Andrey Shoshina, research worker and co-ordinator of excursions of Institute of Nuclear Physics . "Our excursions are intended, mainly, for senior pupils. We explain to them, that engaged in science not necessarily means to vegetate in uncertainty and poverty. By a word, entice in science, prepare itself changing. I do not see the special sense to lead quite unknown people on an institute, every managers and other. By him an institute, certainly, will be interesting, but it distracts research workers from work". No doubt, Novosibirsk is not Sochi and not Arabic Emirates. But we have indeed many tourists, they are although aimed not on our city, but on Altai and on Baykal. Novosibirsk, thus, is a trans-shipment point. Accordingly, development of transit tourism far aktual'nee for our city, than development of mysterious tourism of scientific.
