  • The main attraction of the city, as in many Russian cities, what to say. Beautiful views of the Opera and Ballet Theatre, monuments to Lenin, revolutionaries and young people I really like-monumental multifigured composition, which gives completeness square when viewed from the theatre, though it shares intersection of half-and-half. In the square you can walk, see photographic exhibitions, sit on a bench in the shade of bushes and eat ice cream from the kiosk at the crossroads. And tired-descend into the subway, located immediately, and go where you want, including most of rare sights of our city. In Krasnoyarsk, for example, no Metro, and will have to stand in traffic jams

  • Originally this place served as a parking area for crews before Business House (at the administrative centre of Siberian region). In the future this area looked like a square in front of the Bank building. By the 100th anniversary of Lenin, in the center of the square have established an impressive monument to the leader.  Now on the perimeter are important urban objects, they are also the main city attractions-Opera and Ballet Theatre, the State Bank and other buildings. Under the square is a subway station of the same name.
