  • 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.

  • What I don't like, so this is for his true Soviet architecture, especially in the heart of the city. See, in addition to the Opera House and the newly constructed Mairead not what. There is the oldest building of the city, but it just looks like a Burgundy cube with Windows. Not to mention the parking lot in the middle of the square, the rare shops and small stalls with coffee and food.
