Day 1375 km

Old Kargat and Lake Chany

Start your trip with a visit to the town of Kargat, which is almost 300 years old (by the way, Novosibirsk is 150 years younger!). And in the afternoon, stay on course for Lake Chany, the largest lake in Western Siberia. Chic views and swimming in clear water will be the best reward for the long drive.

Secrets of Barabinsk - "the heart of Transsib"

After lounging on the shore of Lake Chany, head off to explore an important point on the Trans-Siberian Railway - Barabinsk. Everything in this town is tied up with trains and railways. However, it's not the buildings and monuments that create a special atmosphere, but its friendly locals.

Kuibyshev is one of the oldest cities in the region

Devote the third day to Kuibyshev, one of the oldest cities in Siberia. Kuibyshev was once called the "second Jerusalem", as it was the only place in all Western Siberia to have a synagogue, a Catholic church, and Orthodox churches. The city has preserved quite a few curious buildings, which you will have to see today.
