  1. Foundation and Early Years (1716-1800):
    • Omsk was founded in 1716 as a fortress at the confluence of the Om and Irtysh Rivers. It served as a strategic outpost and administrative center for the expanding Russian Empire.

  2. Imperial Period (1800-1917):
    • In the 19th century, Omsk continued to develop as an important regional center. It became the capital of Western Siberia and later the administrative center of the vast Siberian Cossack Host.
