Novosibirsk is Russia's third-largest city by total area. More than a million people live there. The average lowest temperature in winter is about 50 degrees. No wonder that these were Siberians who always knew how to fight with cold. New century brought state-of-art technologies and knowledge. They produce all-purpose portable heaters that can warm up even in the most relentless frost. The Ministry of Emergency Situations* use them under extreme conditions, and vacationers and hunters while having a rest. Igor Vukolov experienced one of the Siberian inventions – the portable banya**. He shared his impressions in the film.
