  • Main street for pedestrians only. Popular meeting place for locals especially at one of the many monuments scattered around the entire length of the street, and showing the different forms such as the postman.

  • The main street of the city removed some how. Snow not taken regularly, urns are clogged with debris. Lights burn through one. The city of shame, and city authorities on the drum.

  • This is the place which does not depend on the weather conditions or the time of year or day. The number of non-standard monuments pleasantly surprises. Cafes, restaurants and corporate pirozhkovye are provided for different possibilities of financial and aesthetic. So many beautiful people. This is a plus.
