Shopping is one of the favorite pastimes of residents and guests of the region. Novosibirsk boasts numerous modern malls: Aura, Gallery, Royal Park, Sun City, Sibirsky Moll, MEGA, EDEM, Amsterdam and others.

Tsentralny Rynok (“Central Market” in Russian) comprises a huge territory with several large buildings and many stalls. Here you can find a great variety of goods and food items, including classic Siberian products, such as local herb teas, honey, jams, and handiworks by local craftsmen made of wood, birch bark, and stone. If you happen to get hungry, one of the market’s larger buildings conveniently houses Gastrocourt, a vast food court with several dozen outlets of different concepts and cuisines.
