Russia - Western Siberia (Chapter)
This is the Western Siberia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Russia guidebook.
Heading east from the Ural Mountains, the influence and reach of Moscow noticeably begins to wane as one enters Western Siberia. Unforgiving winters and a history of gulags give the region a bad rap, but Western Siberia is surprisingly friendly, with plenty to offer the passing traveller.
