25 Fascinating Photos Capture Street Scenes of Novosibirsk, Russia in the Early 1970s

Founded in 1893 on the Ob River crossing point of the future Trans-Siberian Railway, Novosibirsk is the administrative center of Novosibirsk Oblast in Russia. Located in the southwestern part of Siberia on the banks of the Ob River, it is the third-most populous city in Russia (after Moscow and St. Petersburg) as well as the most populous city in Asian Russia.

Originally named Novonikolayevsk, the city grew rapidly into a major transport, commercial and industrial hub. It was ravaged by the Russian Civil War but recovered during the early Soviet period, and gained its present name in 1926.

Novosibirsk is home to the headquarters of numerous Russian corporations, as well as the world-renowned Novosibirsk Zoo. It is served by Tolmachevo Airport, the busiest airport in Siberia.

  1. Камень лежит у жасмина.
    Под этим камнем клад.
    Отец стоит на дорожке.
    Белый-белый день.

    В цвету серебристый тополь,
    Центифолия, а за ней -
    Вьющиеся розы,
    Молочная трава.

    Никогда я не был
    Счастливей, чем тогда.
    Никогда я не был
    Счастливей, чем тогда.

    Вернуться туда невозможно
    И рассказать нельзя,
    Как был переполнен блаженством
    Этот райский сад.

    (Тарковский)
