The river Irtysh
The city of Omsk, on the banks of the Irtysh and 0m rivers, is beautiful and sweeping in a Siberian manner.
The Alexeevskaya Chapel
The city cherishes its past. The architects and antiquity lovers restored the Serafimo-Alexeevskaya Chapel,
which even now is surrounded by numerous legends. One of the legends says that the Chapel was built in 1908 to commemorate
the birth of the Cesarevitch Alexei. Another tells that it was built to memorialize the soldiers killed in Russia's war
with Japan. The chapel was torn down in the 1920s and was rebuilt brick by brick as a project under the supervision of the artist V. Desyatov.
