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...more
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...more
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).more

is one of the 3 places I mentioned before...
complete white decoration, with mood changing lights, resident and guest DJ's, incredibly beautiful and friendly service.
...It makes you forget that the sushi they serve is not the best....a must, if you want to:
a) just see beautiful people
b) eventually see some of the local prominence
c) provide your Blancpain some fresh air.
I'm afraid I had only one choice to describe it and I've chosen "Nightclub" because they call themselves such...I reckon it's more a concert-dancing-eating and drinking-live music mix.Quite interesting, you might even meet Alexander Khloponin (current boss of the Krai) on a Friday evening. Fashionable, like everywhere in Russiamore
We took the train from Tomsk to Krasnoyarsk and travelled 3rd class ie Platzkartni. Leaving Krasnoyarsk we took the Baikal Express to Irkutsk. For the Baikal Express you can only buy the tickets once the train left the previous station, only then it is known how many places there are actually on sale. There is no Platzkartni on Baikal Express as...more
There is not much graffiti in Russian cities but you can find it. I don't think that there is no future and hope that the future for the young people is brightening up! It just fitted that near the graffiti I saw a dead rat. It just somehow went together...
This is one of the biggest dams in Russia. Take a bus to Divnogorsk town from Retchnoi Voksal (lower level). From Divnogorsk we took the bus further at a special price to the bridge of the Yenisey (Abakan road) in front of the dam. Not understanding the signs we walked up the road to the dam, heard a loudspeaker, but obviously didn't understand...more
When in Krasnoyarsk please don't miss Stolby. There are minibuses to get here. And come prepared for several hours walk. At the beginning there is a long stretch uphill. Unfortunately the big red granite rocks are not near the road, so you need to walk. It's best to wear to kind of hiking boots. Take something to drink and a snack with you as well...more

This impressive bridge is the lifeline to the other part of the city on the opposite bank. You can take a marshrutka (minibus) to cross it. On the other side you will also see a tram line. On the city center side you will travel by mini buses or overcrowded trolleybuses which are full of pensioners. The Yenisey river is very wide and you can take a...more
