Omsk region

The Omsk region is a subject of the Russian Federation in the southwest of Siberia, part of the Siberian Federal District and the West Siberian Economic Region. It borders on Kazakhstan in the south, the Tyumen region in the west and north, the Novosibirsk region in the east and the Tomsk region in the northeast.

The territory is 141,140 km², which is 0.82% of the area of Russia.
On the site of the Omsk region there is an interactive art object of the Russian Angara-A5 launch vehicle. It's digital inside. Anyone who dares to enter the rocket will be able to travel through the area's iconic landmarks. Guests of the Omsk exposition will be able to communicate with world-famous athletes. The stand presents the awards of Omsk Olympic athletes. There will also be autograph sessions. It will be possible to check your force of impact right at the spot thanks to a special simulator.
The highlight of our stand is the work of Omsk “Levsha” (“Lefty”) – microminiaturist Anatoly Konenko. Among the unique exhibits there is a microminiature model of the Angara rocket in the eye of a needle. Even the youngest visitors will not be left out; they will be able to take part in excavations and find unusual artifacts in the kinetic sand. The region's stand is decorated not just with modern objects, but also with artifacts found in the north of the Omsk region. Thus, bone carver Nikolai Peristov will present his work “Omsk Fortress” at the exposition. Its parts are made of small pieces of mammoth tusk of different colors.

My mother, Valeria Prokop, is a Russian National Artist and actress in Omsk Academic Drama Theater. We are inviting you to learn more about Omsk – a city of hard-workers and dreamers, a city with a strong character! Omsk region is a “gateway to Siberia”. The main advantage of our region is that it extends 600 kilometers from South to North, so tourists have a unique opportunity to discover vast steppes and travel up to the actual taiga. The region has a number of natural resources: 4240 rivers, lots of lakes and water reservoirs including the saltwater ones, the northernmost stopover site for Dalmatian pelicans and one-of-its-kind plantings of carvel pines in the North. Omsk region houses 10 cultural heritage sites of federal significance, the oldest city within the boundaries of the current Siberian Federal District, numerous archaeology and paleontology centers as well as best and largest theaters and museums in Siberia. For instance, in 2024, the oldest Omsk State Academic Drama Theater will celebrate 150th anniversary! The administrative center of the region, Omsk, is a city of two fortresses and its history is inextricably linked with the glorious conquests of the Russian Empire in the East. So diverse and unique, Omsk has seen its roles and credentials changed, while strengthening its strategic significance in the continent: starting with being the center of West Siberian governor-generalship and subsequently Steppe governor-generalship and growing into the major economic center in the end of 19th-beginning of 20th centuries that attracted notable merchant dynasties; from the Third capital of Russia to the cultural capital of modern Siberia. You will not have any problems looking for the Omsk stand since it is located just next to a big art-object in a shape of a real-size fragment of the Angara-A5 rocket. You can walk inside, where a 3D capsule is installed so you can feel a rocket launch and experience what it is like to be an astronaut. Behind this art-object is the Omsk region stand “For Omsk, the Universe is the limit”. Here, a scaled-down copy of the Angara rocket is presented, and the rockets are assembled by Omsk specialists. The Angara rockets are the state-of-the-art modular type launch vehicles with varying payload capacities belonging to a family of eco-friendly launchers of various types. Angara was firstly launched successfully in 2014. It is expected that 10 such rockets will be produced in Omsk annually.
