Arkhangel'sk Things to Do

  • Unavoidable Lenin statue

    In many places of Russia the Lenin statue has been removed, but in the most remote places thay have not done it, eprhaps because many people feel nostalgia for the communism times.

  • Ploschad Lenina

    This square is so ugly so that it is actually interesting again. It features the city's high rise building. Dom Knigi, which sells a few classics in english. A Lenin statue and some interesting Soviet architecture.

    more
  • Svyatitelya Nikolaya Chudotvortsa Church

    This is the other lovely church near the river. The two churches are actually just a very short distance from each other.

  • Gostiny Dvor

    In old times this used to be the trading/shopping complex of the city. Nowadays, there is a museum and the building or rather what is left of it is under repair.

Arkhangel'sk Restaurants

  • Pizzeria

    Well, they have some very funny pizzas here, ie sweet ones for desert. I had a hawaiian which wasn't too bad but it actually had a different name. The menu is in Russian only. They also have other dishes but not always all of them are available.

  • Some exotic in the Arkhangelsk

    Small, but very friendful restaurant in the center of Arkhangelsk. Music seems strange to me, but all the rest is rather good. Nice service and national chinise dishes. There they also have chinise and japanise plum wine and sake.

  • For those who like live music

    Good service, tasty food and very nice music... that's all. Every day they play live jazz in "Amadej". If you like this style of music, you surely will like this restaurant.

Arkhangel'sk Transportation

  • Flying from Solovetski Islands to...

  • Ships and boats

    If you want to walk on river Nothern Dvina then you have to go to rever berth. Don't mix it up with sea-river port which you see on photo. If you stay near this port and look to river then turn to the right and go about 200 m, then you'll see rever berth. Happy river walk!

  • Morskoy Retschnoy Voksal

    This River station looks rather impressive but inside there is a market and I saw a booth selling air tickets and another one railway tickets. I couldn't find a timetable for river or sea transport anywhere. My guess, they just handle transport vessels there.Outside there is one of the big local bus stations. You could take a bus to Malye Korely...

    Area of Arkhangel'sk region is very rich in forest (about 230 square km), rivers and bogs. So don't go to fishing and hunt without hunter, because you can get lost and never find your way.
    I'm not expert in that activity. But I remember that salmon is fished in June.

    You can unite Snowmobile safari with trip to to the Museum of Wooden Architecture. You'll drive the snowmobiles along a small beautiful river and picturesque hills to the Museum. The foot walk in the biggest in Europe open-air museum of wooden architecture is a unique way to experience the calm and sensitive nature of Pomor Land.

Arkhangel'sk Favorites

  • Marphin dom at Pomorskaya street

    It was jazz concert here when I been in Marphin dom last time. Some exhibitions and concert happen there from time to time. Marphin dom is situated on Pomorskaya street. City goverment decided to save this street in center of Arkhangel'sk like memory of wood building. There are only wood houses at this street and all of them are different.

  • Linin square

    Lenin square is a centre of the city. I don't know why yumyum said that this square is ugly. I don't think so. And I can't understand another thing. Why city goverment put Lenin monument instead of fountain. I liked fountain more.
