Novosibirsk (Новосибирск)

Siberia's largest city and the third largest in the country, Novosibirsk was first founded as Novonikolayevsk in 1893. Mostly a 20th-century creation, it saw massive expansion under Stalin, becoming the major industrial and transport center that it is today. Short on actual historic attractions, it holds a certain charm in its monumental and, at times, brutalist architectural uniformity.
