    Krasnoyarsk

Krasnoyarsk is located on the bank of Yenisei, 3955 km to the east of Moscow.

Climate is sharply continental. The average temperature is -17 in January and +18 in July. Precipitation level is 460 mm a year.

It is a large transport knot of the Eastern Siberia at the crossing of Yenisei by the Trans-Siberian railroad and the highway Moscow - Vladivostok.

It has the area of 354 sq km and the population of 1003 thousand people (as of June 1, 2012).

Krasnoyarsk is surrounded with mountains and hills covered with taiga and pine forests. The southeastern part of Krasnoyarsk adjoins the Stolby nature reserve with rocks of fanciful shape.

The modern city consists of 2 parts: the left-bank part located on high terraces of Yenisei and limited with steep hills from the north and the west and flat right-bank. Both parts of the city are connected with a bridge (1956-61) over 2 km long.

Places of Interest:

The city has a number of theatres, such as opera and ballet, drama, musical comedy, young spectators, and puppet theatres.

There is a large and a small concert hall, a dance hall, an organ music hall, a circus, a philharmonic society and two exhibition halls in Kransoyarsk.

The citys museums include a local history museum with several branches, a cultural and historical center, V.I.Lenin's House Museum, P.A.Krasikov's Museum Apartment, Surikov's Memorial Estate, and Surikov Art Museum.

On the place of the former Karaulnaya Tower of the stockade town on the Karaulnaya (Guard) Mountain there is a chapel reconstructed in 1854-55. In the 18th century the city extended to the North and the West, with the main streets stretching parallel to Yenisei. The architectural monuments include Pokrovsk Church (built in 1785-95, restored in 1977-78), the Blagoveshchensk Church (1804-12), etc.

From the 1820s the city was built up according to a symmetrical plan. Monuments of Siberian architecture of the early 20th century have remained there: former mansions of the Gadalovs merchants, bibliophile merchant Yudin, etc.

Krasnoyarsk today is one of the biggest cultural, industrial and scientific centers of Eastern Siberia. Once closed to foreigners because of a concentration of defense-related industries, Krasnoyarsk is now open for tourists and guests from all over the world.
