Zaeltsovsky Park

If you are tired of the ‘stone jungles’, it’s the right time to go to a park for some fresh air. In a city so crowded with cars as Novosibirsk it is vital. The city center is not especially rich in parks, but the outskirts offer wonderful opportunities, besides, they are easily accessible by public transportation.

Zaeltsovsky Park is one of the best opportunities offering a lot to do for everyone. In summer it is a paradise for bicycle-lovers and inline skaters, while in winter you can do cross-country skiing, skating, tobogganing, ski-doo, and dog sledging; all the year round you can just walk and enjoy pine trees. all necessary equipment (skis, skates, bikes, etc) can be rented on an hourly basis.

If you feel hungry, there are several cafeterias and a restaurant-shalet, and a very special location called ‘Ethnic Village’ with a tea yurt where you are offered to taste exotic sorts of tea like salted tea, tea with pepper or herbal tea in an exotic ambience with ethnic music and try on traditional clothing of Siberian tribes.

The tea tent often offers its visitors different arts, crafts or photo exhibitions,

while the ‘Ethnic Settlement’ regularly organizes different theme events. Here you can also practise archery. IMG_1507

You can get to the park by bus 95 and minibuses 19, 25, 28. Another opportunity, though in summer only, is to get there by the so-called ‘Children Railway’ (in Russian only), the first station of which is situated in the Novosibirsk Zoo (
