  • The Emperor felt a little less spectacular, but compared to the statue as a memorial photo shoot featured much that is instructive in a heck of a lot to watch the tour near and around Nishi-cotton.

  • New quay, a new monument (there is more, including arch). Monument to historically a bit controversial, but generally good and well located. There are small playgrounds, nearby parks, eternal flame, the Avenue of remembrance, churches-monasteries, administration, hotels, cafes, there is an old wooden building, etc. is a good area for "a walk in the evening.

  • Monument to fresh enough. Installed it just 5 years ago, but it is very well blended into the architectural ensemble of the promenade. Monument in 2011 year in honor of the 350-year anniversary of the city. Bronze figure, is a collective image of siberians who settled these lands. Originally the monument was nameless, and who only as called. In this regard, later monument placed plaques with the inscription "Jacob Pohabovu with comrades" on one, and with words from the letter of James Pakhabau Enisejskomu Cossack voivode Ivan Rzhevskomu to another.
