Oil and gas are the main natural resources of the Tomsk Region (the area is 317 thousand sq.km, and the population 1009 thousand people). Petrochemical industry with a giant oil-refinery complex, mechanical engineering and woodworking industries play the central role in the economy of Tomsk.
Last century Tomsk used to be called "Siberian Athens", as it was the first town in Siberia where a university was opened (1880).
