I live in West Siberia. My city - Tomsk. Tomsk called Siberian Athens. The city was started 7 October 1604 year, because Boris Godunov ordered Gavrila Pisemsky and Vasil Tyrkova build a fortress on the banks of the river Tom.
I can tell about Altai, Sayan, Kuznetsk Alatau. I traveled through the Altai and Sayan, Khakassia.


I only teach English because I apologize in advance for any errors.

I had a coworker who grew up in Norilsk and he said the best part about Siberia was the outdoors and hunting/hiking. How is the area around Tomsk?

The area around Tomsk are forest,rivers and lakes. Hunting, hiking, fishing developed strongly.
But Altai and Sayan better than area around Tomsk. Mountain Altai and Sayan have many remote locations away from civilization. Known nature reserve Ergaki is located in Sayan.

What clothes to wear depends on the weather. If the air temperature to 5 F (-15C), wear light baselayer and a jacket and pants (or skirt) insulated Thinsulate or wool. Or wear a fur coat. Shoes insulated fur, wool or Thinsulate. If the temperature is below 5 F (-15C), wear wool socks and wool baselayer.

For winter if the air temperature to 32 F (0C) , it is not cold.
If the air temperature to 5 F (-15C), it is cool.
If the air temperature to -18,4 F (-28C), it is cold.
If the air temperature to -31F (-35C), it is very cold

I can translate degrees to Kelvin.

FUCK YOU, that's my name

I used to spend a lot of time in Tyumen and Moscow for work. Any time I tried to eat any fried food (French fries, fried fish) I would poo poo my brains out. I successfully ate all kinds of food over there without issue (loved pelmeni, shshi soup with smetana, etc), but as soon as I ate more than one french fry with my Vienna Sandwich I would spend the whole afternoon on the can. Any idea what Russian cooking oil has in it that made everybody I knew over there blast away like this? Lard?

I loved Tyumen and wish I could go back. It was gritty and real - unlike Moscow - kind of like Cleveland in Siberia.

How often, or at all, are you cut off from the outside world? Do roads or trains get blocked due to snow or storms?

How far away is the next similar sized town or city, a few hours?

For some reason Euros really suck to

I just visited Murmansk(Russia) a few weeks ago. God drat b, that place is cold as gently caress. I can't believe people have lived there for hundreds of years.

Is there a lot of Chinese or Tartar people up there looking for jobs in industry?

Edit: for clarification yes I know Murmansk is nowhere near Sibera I just could not imagine living in a climate so cold my whole life.
