This could be really "off the beaten path tip" as this building is situated far from main streets of Lipetsk.
This is the only building that remained from monastery of XVI c., a seed from which town have started.
Interesting modern monument to the founder of the city - Peter the Great. Not actually founder, but real social life and growth in the very small town of Lipetsk started after Piter's order to build here new Iron Works.
This is another monument to Peter the Great, but erected in XIX c. (small one). It stands between Upper Park and Lower Park near the road and it is hard to walk beside - only observe from opposite side of the street.
As a native from Lipetsk I believe everybody must go to the local theater located in a center part of Lipetsk across of street from City hall. We have world famous troop over there and I really enjoy their plays.
Living in States I usually travel to NY and go on Broadway. Lipetsk Theater is not quite as good, but well worse its money: regular tickets are from 2 till 8$. "Must go” place!!!
"Petrovsky Spusk" is a long stairs going from Cathederal square down to the local Park. You can see monument to Lenin there. Old monument to Peter is just to the right from here.
