Barnaul, Siberia - 2007 in Review (58 pics)

Welcome to Barnaul, the city located in the SW of Siberia, 200 km south of Novosibirsk on the River Ob.

Barnaul's population is 600,000 in city and 660,000 in metro area.
The city was founded in 1730.

Here are some most interesting photos in my opinion taken by me from May till December of 2007.

Very nice, the city is quite modern. Didn't expect to see so many new cars all the way there in Siberia.

But i think that's because of our stereotype point of view in Europe towards Russia (and other Eastern European countries).

It's a very good thing to show some of the real Siberian cities.

People in the Netherlands probably think of rundown commieblocks, slums, muddy roads and temperatures -30 all year long.

Well, i think this whole forum can actually an eye-opener to a lot of people who see foreign countries only from the negative news on TV.

Yeah, it's the same what I heard from a forumer from the Netherlands - Vertigo, he was in Barnaul in 2004
Sure, you may find rundown places in Siberia, but mostly in rural areas.
