Russia: Novosibirsk

Novosibirsk (Russian: Новосиби́рск) is the third most populous city in Russia after Moscow and St. Petersburg and the most populous city in Asian Russia, with a population of 1,473,754 as of the 2010 Census. The city is located in the southwestern part of Siberia on the banks of the Ob River adjacent to the Ob River Valley. The city is "only" 122 years old founded in 1893 at the future site of a Trans-Siberian Railway bridge crossing the great Siberian river of Ob.

On the card you can see the Novosibirsk-Glavniy Railway Station. It is one of the largest Railway Stations in Russia and the building was supposed to look like a large steam-engine. (if it does, it is up to you).
