The Dome of Omsk
Before the Bolsheviks came to power, Omsk had the Center - the Omsk Dome and the nearby square. It was one of the most beautiful churches in Russia. But the Barbarians had no mercey and it was destroyed in the 30-ies. So, Omsk lost its Center.
The Communists tried to fill in the gap, and made out of it an amusement square with a fountain and slides in winter.
It is only in the new millenium that Omsk had got its Center back. The Dome is reconstructed strictly according to the original.
To be sure it is again one of the most beautiful churches in Russia!
Omsk Drama Theatre
