  • This apparently is where everyone hangs out on a nice evening. Includes the mandatory Lenin statue, the nearby opera house, and lots of open space. Surprised to see so many skateboards. 
  • Lenin square, referred to as teenagers "Scaffold". Perhaps the most symbolic place in the city. A popular meeting place. Is right in front of the symbol of the City-Opera and Ballet (now "the Consequence"). Still newlyweds, often come here to photographing. Frequently between the monument to Lenin and the Opera organizes photo exhibitions. Thanks to the small skveriku, Lenin square is beautiful in any season.
