Time to visit Omsk
Seven main reasons ( apart from many others) why you should visit Omsk:

1.To see most important Church of all Siberia where the Banner of
Ermak was kept. When you stand near this church you understand why some
people call Omsk 'St.Petersburg of Siberia'.

2.To see a building where may be the most romantic love story in Russian
history
between Admiral Kolchak and Mrs. Temiryova took place.

3. To see the Governor's palace from where under the Tsar huge territory from the Arctic ocean to the Xinjiang deserts in present-day China was managed and where the old good Russian imperial banner used to be hoisted ( the honor given at the time only to Moscow, St.Petersburg, Tiflis, Helsingfors and Omsk ).

4. To see the bank building where the Gold reserve of Russia was kept as Omsk was proclaimed the capital of Russian Empire during the Civil war 1917-1921.

5. To see the Guard's house( the oldest stone building of the fortress) where the Siberian regionalists used to sip their beer behind bars discussing the strange and thrilling idea of separating Siberia from mainland Russia and creation of the United States of Siberia!
Sure enough Omsk was, as well as Tomsk, the cradle of this movement.

6. To see most beautiful church in Siberia which was blown up by
Communist barbarians and was carefully reconstructed by the Omskovites to
become again the historical center of the City.

7. To see how the historical center of Omsk was reconstructed for its 300-th anniversary in 2016 with Gaspromneft investing and involving best Russian and French designers ( see pictures below, please).
