Novosibirsk is Russia's third-largest city, after Moscow and Saint Petersburg, and the administrative center of Novosibirsk Oblast. It is also the largest city in Siberia. Sights include Lenin's square with statute of Lenin left from Soviet times standing right in front of the Opera and Ballet House which is beautiful at night. It is also the largest opera house in Russia. The Chapel of St. Nicholas, originally built in 1915 to commemorate 300 years of Romanov rule, destroyed in 1930 and rebuilt in 1993 can be visited as well. In winter residents build an ice town on the Ob River, and in summer residents go to the beach. Near the city center on Krasny Prospekt, you can also see some excellent work in the Novosibirsk Art Museum and Local Studies Museum. You could also consider the Novosibirsk Regional Puppet Theater (over 70 years old in an interesting historic building), or the Novosibirsk Circus.
