Krasnoyarsk

4.6
Famed for its scenic location, Krasnoyarsk so impressed author Anton Chekhov that he considered it Siberia's most appealing city, describing it as a "picturesque, cultured town." A convenient pit stop for passengers making the trans-Siberian journey, the city serves as the country's major railway junction halfway between Moscow and Vladivostok. Although most of its buildings date from the Soviet era, Krasnoyarsk also features several historical churches, fine examples of Russian Orthodox architecture. A sprawling nature reserve--the city's main tourist attraction--covers an area of over 470 sq km (180 sq mi), its giant rock formations attracting adventurous climbers from around the world. If you prefer something less extreme, take a boat tour on the Yenisei River. Krasnoyarsk is in Krasnoyarsk Krai. Take a look at our Russia day trip site to refine the details of your trip to Krasnoyarsk.

Where to stay in Krasnoyarsk

One of the rare true urban centers in Siberia, Krasnoyarsk is a great base for outdoor expeditions and an important stop on the Trans-Siberian route. The Yenisey River flows through the heart of the city, where you'll find many of its best-known hotels, as well as many smaller pensions and bed and breakfasts. You can also find a good selection of accommodations in other areas of the city. The style of lodgings ranges from luxury and designer boutique hotels to accommodations that have changed little since Soviet times. Shoestring travelers have a number of hostels and apartments to choose from.
