What to Do in the Krasnoyarsk Territory: Entertainment and Attractions
March 10, 2019 16:28

Krasnoyarsk residents believe that the center of Siberia is just their city. However, Novosibirsk still claims this title, there is a long-standing dispute between residents of two large cities in the region. While intractable. Nevertheless, Krasnoyarsk was marked on a 10-ruble bill, namely, two city sights - the Communal bridge, which received a gold medal along with the Eiffel Tower, and the Paraskeva Pyatnitsa chapel.

Krasnoyarsk is called the city of fountains - there are 107 water constructions in the city. The most beautiful is the light-music fountain on Theater Square.

The city is also interesting for museums (the first museum night took place there, then Muscovites picked up the idea), theaters (tickets need to be bought at least a month in advance) and nature. The Stolby Nature Reserve, the Bobrovy Log ski park, the Roev Ruchei Zoo are within the city limits, and can be easily reached by public transport.
