    Is very close to the train station of Novosibirsk-Main, so if you have at least a couple of free hours in town, this place is worth a visit. In the square, as the name implies, there is a statue of Lenin. Within walking distance of the area's major attractions, fine day walk will be fun

    Place in the center of the city, and as is customary in our country have repeatedly renamed. This territory was called: the new marketplace, then Red, square of the victims of the revolution, Stalin's name, and as a result we now have Lenin square. The area is conditionally divided into two parts theater, and transport. Theater more humane that Lee, then defeated cute square with neat paths, benches for rest. Accordingly there is located the famous opera and Ballet Theatre, this unique architectural complex. In the center of the square stands a very impressive monument to Vladimir Ilyich and other major compositions of the Soviet period.
