Seversk is a town lying several km to the north of Tomsk. Its population now
comprises about 110 thousand people. Despite the town is not a very small one
and has well-developed infrastructure, it is pretty unknown in Siberia, let
alone in the rest of the country. In fact, only a few people even in Novosibirsk
have heard of it, though it is situated approximately 270 km to the north of it.
The explanation is somewhat mysterious – the town is a ‘secret’ one.
