    Background: The student's chorus is going to sing...

    According to traditions the old student's hymn is sung in Latin.

    Tomsk was never a big city and now its population is a little bit higher than 200 000 citizens. The fifth each is a student. There are 10 Institutes and 20 colleges, and a University in the city. The University was founded in 1888.

    Many of them became teachers and professors of the University.

    They left for the contemporary students unique collections. And among them is a herbarium.

    35000 samples of flora are gathered here: of Asia, Europe and other continents. The students can see the exotic flowers of herbarium and at once find themselves in the tropical forest without leaving the building. And it is 50???? C of front. The Tomsk University is proud of its library, which is one of the oldest libraries in Syberia. Two and a half million books are gathered here. Many scientists arrive in Tomsk to study the unique editions. Among them is the Ostrojskaya Bible, which was printed by Ivan Fedorov in the 16th century. Here is also the collection of engravings of the 18th century of Hoidel from shakespear's gallery. Such complete collections are only in London and brussels. The students of the University can find here the works in all scientific spheres-philosofy, history, biology, chemistry, mathematics etc....
