This is a still confidential tourist destination. Within Russia, Western Siberia extends from Mongolia to the Arctic Ocean and from the eastern Urals to the watershed of the Ob and Yenisei rivers. It is a wet plain dotted with lakes and swamps. The Western Siberian Plain (За́падно-Сиби́рская равни́на) occupies the western part of the immense Siberia, covering about a third of its area, stretching 2,400 km from north to south and 1,900 km from east to west. It is a mosaic of varied natural spaces: tundra, wooded tundra, taiga, deciduous and coniferous forests, steppe and semi-arid zone. To the south, you have Altai mountains with superb peaks where you can hike, climb and raft. In the forests are located romantic isbas and some cities offer ancient centers, including Tomsk and Tobolsk with its kremlin and Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Sophia. You will not miss visiting and staying in Novosibirsk, with tourist attractions that attract locals and foreigners alike: water park, zoological park, botanical garden, Byzantine cathedral Alexander Nevsky, railway museum... While the discovery of Western and Eastern Siberia remains an off-the-beaten track adventure, tourism is developing rapidly in the region and the host infrastructure is improving. Don't forget your tour guide in your suitcases.
