Writer Jüri Parijõgi was born in Siberi in 1892.

The Siberi village inspired the name of the Birch Water company, Sibberi. Birch water is technically 100% birch sap. It is traditional in Northern and Eastern Europe. Whilst looking to source the raw Birch sap, the co-founders came across this Siberi village and loved the name, only changing the spelling for pronunciation purposes.
