NOVOSIBIRSK METRO:

Yesterday was a celebration dedicated to the 25-anniversary of the Novosibirsk Metro. The first and only Metro system in the Siberia was opened in Novosibirsk on December 28, 1985. On this day, the first line with the five stations was put into operation (however, it was opened for passangers only few days later, on January 7, 1986). Therefore, Novosibirsk Metro become the fourth in Russia and eleventh in the former USSR. Especially for this date was created special Metro train "Novonikolayevsk-Novosibirsk", dedicated to the history of the Siberian capital. Each of its four carriages tells about separate periods in a relatively short but remarkable history of Novosibirsk. The exterior of carriages was created by graduates and students of the Novosibirsk State Academy of Architecture and Arts. The exterior decoration is based on a unusual combination of the vinyl applique and graffiti drawings. The interior decoration is based on the scanned pages of the newspaper "Soviet Siberia", as well as various documents, text materials and photos dedicated to Novosibirsk and its residents. Exposition of the special train is planned to update twice a year.

The exposition of the first carriage is named - "Thus began the Novosibirsk" and devoted to historical period from 1893 till 1920:


The city was founded in 1893 at the future site of a Trans-Siberian Railway bridge crossing the great Siberian river of Ob and was named Novonikolayevsk, in honor of both Saint Nicholas and of the reigning Emperor, Nicholas II. The bridge was completed in the spring of 1897, making the new settlement the regional transportation hub. The importance of the city further increased with the completion of the Turkestan-Siberia Railway in the early 20th century. The new railway connected Novonikolayevsk to Central Asia and the Caspian Sea.

At the time of the bridge's opening, Novonikolayevsk hosted a population of 7.800 people. Its first bank opened in 1906, with a total of five banks operating by 1915. In 1907, Novonikolayevsk, now with a population exceeding 47.000, was granted town status with full rights for self-government. The pre-revolutionary period saw the population of Novosibirsk reach to 80.000. During this period the city experienced steady and rapid economic growth, becoming one of the largest commercial and industrial centers of Siberia and developing a significant agricultural processing industry, as well as a power station, iron foundry, commodity market, several banks, and commercial and shipping companies. By 1917, Novonikolayevsk possessed seven Orthodox and one Roman Catholic church, several cinemas, forty primary schools, a high school, a teaching seminary, and the Romanov House non-classical secondary school. In 1913, Novonikolayevsk became one of the first places in Russia to institute compulsory primary education.

The Russian Civil War took a toll on the city, with wartime epidemics, especially typhus and cholera, claiming thousands of lives. In the course of the war the Ob River Bridge was destroyed and for the first time in its history the population of Novonikolayevsk began to decline. The Soviet Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies of Novonikolayevsk took control of the city in December 1917. In May 1918, Czechoslovak prisoners of war rose in opposition to the revolutionary government and, together with the White Guards, captured Novonikolayevsk. The Red Army took the city in 1919, retaining it throughout the rest of the Civil War.

The exposition of the second carriage is named - "Weekdays of the great constructions" (1920-1940):

Novonikolayevsk began reconstruction in 1921 at the start of Lenin's New Economic Policy. It was given its new name, Novosibirsk, in 1926. The new name can be translated as "New Siberian City".

During Stalin's industrialization push, Novosibirsk secured its place as one of the largest industrial centers of Siberia. Several massive industrial facilities were created in the city, including the "Sibkombain" plant, specializing in the production of heavy mining equipment. Additionally a metal processing plant, a food processing plant and other industrial enterprises and factories were built, as well as a new power station. The Great Soviet Famine saw the influx of more than 170.000 refugees to Novosibirsk. The new arrivals settled in barracks at the outskirts of the city, giving rise to slums such as Bolshaya Nakhalovka, Malaya Nakhalovka, and others.

Rapid growth and industrialisation were the reasons behind Novosibirsk's nickname: the "Chicago of Siberia".

The exposition of the third carriage is named - "The city parched by the War" (1940-1945):

During the Great Patriotic War Novosibirsk plant became a one of the major supplier of fighter aircraft. In 1944, Novosibirsk supplied to the front 17 fighter planes in the day, although more than half workers at the plant were children (from 14- to 16-years old) from suburban villages. They worked in conditions of severe discipline for 700 grams of bread a day. This was the price of the motto "The regiment per day", with which Novosibirsk went down in history of the Great Patriotic War.

Having 400.000 population prior the beginning of the Nazi invasion, Novosibirsk took 128.000 indigenous inhabitants of the besieged Leningrad. Simultaneously, on the shores of the Ob were registered 50 Leningrad enterprises and institutions. Becoming a Leningrad at one-quarter, Siberian city of aircraft manufacturers adopted many cultural and aesthetic traditions of the "Venice of the North".

The exposition of the fourth carriage is named - "Novosibirsk looking to the future" and devoted to the history of the construction of Novosibirsk Metropoliten (from 1979 till now):

Tram rails were laid in 1954, by which time Novosibirsk reached a population of 731.000, making it the largest city in Siberia. The following year the original Ob River Bridge was replaced by the new Kommunalny bridge.

The rapid growth of the city prompted the construction of a hydroelectric power station with a capacity of 400.000 kilowatts, causing the creation of a giant water reservoir—now known as the Ob Sea. As a direct result of the station's construction vast areas of fertile land were flooded as were relic pine woods in the area, additionally the new open space created by the reservoir's surface caused average wind speeds to double, increasing the tempo of soil erosion.

In the 1950s, the Soviet Government directed that a center for scientific research be built in Novosibirsk; consequently, the multi-facility scientific research complex of Akademgorodok was constructed about 30 kilometers (19 mi) south of the city center in 1957. The Siberian Branch of the Academy of Sciences is headquartered in Akademgorodok and the town hosts a total of fourteen research institutions and universities. Although it possess a fully autonomous infrastructure, Akademgorodok is administratively a part of Novosibirsk.

On September 2, 1962, Novosibirsk reached a population of one million. At that time, it was the youngest city in the world with over a million people. Novosibirsk took fewer than seventy years to achieve this milestone. Its current population is 1.409 mln. people, this is Russia's third-largest city

In 1979, work began on the Novosibirsk Metro Transit System, culminating in the opening of the first line in 1985. Plans for a rapid transit system began to be formed in the late 1960s and on the May 12, 1979 the first construction works began. With wide experience in metro construction from the other metros of the USSR, it took seven and a half years to complete work on the five-station launch stage of the system which was triumphantly opened on January 7, 1986, becoming the eleventh Metro in the USSR and the fourth in Russia.

Work quickly expanded to meet the original plans for a 62 kilometre 4 line network. However the financial difficulties of the early 1990s meant that most of the work had to be frozen, and only recently they have been resumed. The system contains 13 stations on two lines. 80 carriages form 20 four-carriage trains which carry over 250.000 passengers daily. The stations are vividly decorated in late-Soviet style. Currently of the 13 stations, seven are pillar-trispan, four are single vaults and one is pillar-bispan. There is also a ground-level trispan station which follows a 2.145 km covered bridge span of the river Ob.

The special train "Novonikolayevsk-Novosibirsk":


The presentation of the train at the station "Ploshchad Garina-Mikhailovskogo" ("Garin-Mikhailovsky Square"), which named for the founder of Novosibirsk.

Nikolay Garin-Mikhailovsky (1852–1906) was a Russian writer and essayist, locating engineer and railroad constructor. As an engineer Nikolay Garin-Mikhailovsky was involved in construction of the Laspi Pass highway and the Trans-Siberian Railway. In 1891 he headed the surveying party that chose the place for building a railroad bridge over River Ob for the Trans-Siberian Railway. It was Garin-Mikhailovsky who rejected the option of raising a bridge in Tomsk. This decision later resulted in the foundation of Novosibirsk and played a vital role in development of the city:
