    Regional museum

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was very surprised by this modern museum which is western style inside. It's not a dusty old exhibition which you find in so many Russian cities. There are various local lore and historical artifacts to be seen. I consider it a must.

    I don't remember the entrance fee but it wasn't more than a couple of dollars worth of roubles. It's closed on Monday.

    Lenin monument

    This huge Lenin is standing opposite the city park. If you use the trolleybus going from the city center to the railway station you will quite likely travel on Karl Marx street and then you can just get off when you spot it. We did so on our way to the train station.

    This old locomotive is just outside the main railway station building. Meanwhile the reconstruction of the square is finished. This type of loc is from the series SO17 which was constructed from 1945 onwards.

    Try "UKHA" russian fish soup!

    Krasnoyarsk was our last destination after cruising on Yenisey river. We were supposed to spend there only one day and decided to better enjoy it's countryside nature, so our friend took us on a half day picnic, if i can call it that way..in fact we spent our time fishing and collecting mushrooms. From the fish we cooked a delicious soup, but mushrooms were no use cause we've been said it's dangerous to eat them-the region is not an ecological paradise:)

    eating the soup... cooking the soup...

    Central square

    This huge square is right next to the beginning of the bridge across the river. It is surrounded by the Hotel Krasnoyarsk and the Opera and Ballet Theatre. There is a clock tower, a fountain and a monument.

    central square with clock tower who's the guy?

    The Divnogorsk Dam

    by anzzz Written Jan 19, 2004

    This is the same dam that you can see in the 10 rouble bill and thus it is a popular tourist attraction.

    It is easy to get to the dam: you can take a ferry from Krasnoyarsk up the Yenisey river. The journey takes about 45 minutes. When the ferry arrives, you can take a taxi to the dam (a few kms).
