For me, Tomsk is a lovely academic multicultural city with many beautiful sights. My knowledge of Russia was pretty good before I got here. But now I've learnt a lot more about Russian people and the Russian character; they are very hospitable people with a good sense of humour and rich culture which they are very proud of.
