The city was founded in 1893 as the future site of the Trans-Siberian Railway bridge crossing the great Siberian river Ob and started to grow rapidly. During Stalin's industrialization and Second World War, Novosibirsk, being a large commercial city, turned into one of the largest industrial centers of Siberia.
