Head to a place in Novosibirsk Region where everything, including street names and even restaurant menus, is dedicated to science.

🔬 How to immerse yourself in science?

👩‍🔬 Wooded districts with residential areas for scientists, green squares with curious squirrels, multi-colored four-story buildings, cozy cafes and, of course, buildings of institutes, research centers, museums and laboratories: one day in the Novosibirsk Akademgorodok (‘science town’) will definitely not be enough to explore everything, so be sure to stay longer if you can. 🤓

👨‍🔬 Here’s our checklist, so you don’t miss out on the best that Akademgorodok has to offer:

☑️ Take a photo with ‘Geese’ - as the main building of the new technopark is called

☑️ Admire the tiny details of the stained-glass windows in the main building of one of the best universities in Russia - Novosibirsk State University

☑️ Walk through the greenhouses of the Botanical Garden

☑️ Visit the lab mouse that busily “knits” a DNA strand in front of the Cytology Institute every day 🧬

☑️ And if you’d like to really familiarize yourself with local history, be sure to ask for an excursion to the ‘Integral Museum-Apartment of Everyday Life of Akademgorodok’
