Young Guards memorial museum has always been destination #1 in Krasnodon.
Of course many groups and individuals coming to Krasnodon for a day trip miss lots of other interesting places in the city.
But time is limited and it is usually consumed with a museum excursion and visits to war memorials.
The residents and visitors of Krasnodon have a privilege: the city clock.
It is located at the left tower of the city conference center in downtown Krasnodon.
Frankly speaking I am not sure if the clock is operating, but it doesn't matter for a meeting point.
This is where you could agree to meet after your own individual city tour.
There are a lot of different amateur activities festivals in Krasnodon every year.
They are mostly held in spring and in autumn.
You can see the advertisement posters about those festivals at the columns of the city conference center.
Here are some of the city festivals:
Spring Thaw vocal arts festival;
Little Crystal Heel choreography festival;
Theater Spring amateur actors festival.
The city disco is held in the entrance lobby of the city conference center on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays stating at 7 p.m.
Why not take a look at the famous book of Alexander Fadeyev "Young Guard" before coming to Krasnodon.
After the war was over, Alexander Fadeyev spent some time in this town and then wrote about everything he had heard.
Thus a shocking novel about the young people's feat appeared.
The book is available in lots of languages including English, of course.
I myself have never seen any English copy (except for some chapters on the Internet), but I hope the translation of the novel is good enough.

The Summary of the Novel
Lots of young people's groups coming to Krasnodon to pay a visit to Young Guards' memorial places take a lot of pictures.
It's a must to have a group picture taken in front of the following monuments and memorials:

- Oath monument;
- the Young Heroes memorial plaque;
- The Unsubdued memorial complex on the city outskirts.
Summer disco is often held at Felix restaurant located opposite the bus terminal.
The restaurant has a large terrace and a dancing floor.
