I'm planning to head up to Russia after several weeks in Kirghizistan and Kazakstan to learn some Russian. I could do so in Omsk by integrating the Russian course for foreigners at the University. However I found so far little info on the city of Omsk itself: How welcoming is the city, if there is much going on culturalwise, how open are locals to foreigners, in short is Omsk is an optimal destination to settle down for a month or so and get the pulse of real Russia if I can say.
thanks for your tips!
How do the locals feel about Americans being in their city, any animosity or anti-American sentiments that I should be aware of?

Hello. Could someone look in the phone book and see if there are any Appelt family names listed? My grandfather left Omsk in 1923 and last heard from family in 1936.

I plan to visit Omsk in the second week of January 2006. Various websites and discussion groups mention prices around20 night. But, after hours of searching, I can only find three hotels (Tourist, Molodyozhnaya and Omsk) all quoting rates around80-90. But then, none seems to be available in January! Do they close when the weather gets cold? Has anyone in Omsk got any ideas about where to stay - (closer to20 than90) and available?
I recently met someone who lives in Omsk, Russia. She wants to come visit me in California. I need to borrow550 from my parents to pay the balance of her airline ticket but they want to be sure she is who she says she is and I'm not being scammed. Does anyone live in Omsk or know where I can verify a name and address of someone living in Omsk?
Could anyone give me an idea what it would cost to fly to Omsk? And if a person travels alone and not through a tourist group does that make it more difficult? I have never traveled anywhere outside of the USA before and its all new for me. Thanks! Lonnie
