Omsk is 300 years old. Views of the city from a height.

The history of the city began in 1716, when, by order of Peter I, the Omsk fortress was laid to strengthen the borders of the Russian Empire. In 1797, the fortress received city status. In the XIX century, Omsk became the center of the Steppe Territory, which covered a significant part of Western Siberia and the north of modern Kazakhstan, which made up about a third of the entire country. Thus, for three hundred years, a small fortress on the remote border of the Russian Empire turned into a large industrial center.
