Kemerovo Things to Do
Remains of an old GULAG
Many towns in Siberia were formed after a GULAG finished its activity, mainly after the death of Stalin.
When I asked to the people in Tayga about histroical places they told me that in the old Soviet times instead of the church of the picture there was a tower of a GULAG.Related to:

The heart of Kuzbass
Favorite thing: I have actually failed to find more info on Kemerovo - it's been long time I visited there. But thank God to google!
Here's a website that gives more or less enough information about the city: what to do, where to go and where to eat.
Fondest memory: The square with Lenin statue... Oh well. Always looked like a clean typical Soviet city. Lots of things changed in 5 years. I am sure!
