    Stop At: Akademgorodok, Akademgorodok, Novosibirsky District, Novosibirsk Oblast, Siberian District

    Your tour will start when your tour guide and a driver will pick you up from your centrally located hotel. During your drive, you will get an insight to the history of the city as well as the history of Akademgorodok since its foundation.

    The historic town was founded in the 1950s under the ‘Academy of Sciences’ division of the USSR, and Akademgorodok was the residence to over 60,000 scientists during a period of economic uncertainty.

    A visit to Akademgorodok gets particularly important due to the reason that this is one of the most important scientific and education centers in Russia. You will see the House of Scientist as well as the University of Novosibirsk along with the monument to the founder of Akademgorodok.
