The town of Barabinsk grew out of the railway station of the Omsk section of the Trans-Siberian Railway with the biblical name Kainsk. The modern name was granted to it in 1917, after the name of Barabinskaya lowland where the Tatars of “baraba” nationality once lived.

The town has remained a major railway junction until now, which is evidenced by the newly built impressive and comfortable railway station. All life of Barabinsk is connected with the railway works, but it is famous among travelers due to a quite different thing: tasty river fish. Barabinsk is surrounded by many lakes and water reservoirs, and a fish processing plant is working in the town.

Fish is sold everywhere — in grocery stores, private shops, even on the platforms of the railway station (although this is prohibited). The stalls of the central market are full of fresh and chilled carps, asps, peled, common carps. And this  is true, Barabinsk doesn’t look like a very prosperous town, especially away from the gorgeous railway station square. The historical sights belonging to the former Kainsk include the station building built in the beginning of the 20th century and its approximate contemporary — the brick water tower.

Urban monuments adhere to the railway theme, too, not only a memorial steam locomotive, but also a monument to Lenin at the central square. There is a Local History Museum in Barabinsk: it has an ethnographic exhibition and archaeological findings. Exhibitions of local artists are also held here.
