Through the Merchant Quarters

An excursion through the historical quarters of Novosibirsk, where the houses and atmosphere of a century ago are preserved. You will get to know this small corner of a pre-revolutionary urban area of the early 20th century: wonderful wooden architecture, stone mansions, merchant stories, and peaceful courtyards. Just like today, a century ago these were prestigious neighborhoods where merchants and rich citizens lived.
