FLOWER DELIVERY TO OMSK
Omsk, the ‘Siberian Chicago’, lies amid an infrastructure outlined by the Trans-Siberian Railway, the port on the River Irtysh at the confluence with River Om, federal motorways and the Tsentralny airport. Founded in 1716 as a fortified settlement defending Russia’s eastern borders, this young city was the home of the renowned F. Dostoevsky during his exile. After the Trans-Siberian Railway was constructed, making Omsk an important junction, the city developed rapidly. It grew larger as it encompassed western Soviet Union industries after WWII, and then became a major Siberian oil refining centre. Like other military and industrial cities, Omsk was a ‘closed city’ which prohibited foreign visits. Nowadays, Omsk is a melting pot of cultures, with 80 nationalities under its wing and 50 confessions.
This city has a truly rich calendar of cultural events, with a superb array of seasonal activities for the curious tourist. The bustling city is home to over 500 festivals each year, among which the largest are The Theatre Festival, The Christmas Fair, The Traditional Autumn Fair, and lastly, The Summer Festival, where beautiful local women wear traditional costumes and decorate their hair with flower tiaras, as the artists of Omsk perform dances and songs.
Contributing to these incredible floral displays and events, a flower delivery to Omsk will make the ideal gift.
