Omsk City

Omsk features

Omsk is the second largest city in Siberia and the eighth in Russia. It is a large industrial center: light, food, printing, chemical, petrochemical and aerospace industries.

The climate is continental with frosty winters and hot summers. The average temperature in January is minus 16.3 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 19.6 degrees Celsius.

The city is located in the southern part of the West Siberian Plain, in the center of the southern part of the Omsk region, on the banks of the Irtysh River at the confluence with the Om River. The rivers connect the city with a number of coal and other mineral mining cities and towns of Kazakhstan and with oil, natural gas and lumber rich regions of Siberia.

Omsk airport “Tsentralny”, located 5 km southwest of the city center, offers flights to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Surgut, Omsk, Astana (Kazakhstan). It is an important gateway to the Russian regions located in Siberia and the Far East.

The majority of people living in Omsk are Russians (about 89%), that’s why Orthodox Christianity is the most widespread religion in the city. Also it should be mentioned that about 5% of population are Kazakhs and Tatars, so Islam is the second most popular religion.

Omsk City Day, celebrated on the first Sunday of August, is one of the most widely celebrated holidays.
