Krasnoyarsk is one of the largest Russian cities, the gateway to Eastern Siberia. It is located in the very centre ofRussia on the banks of the Yenisei. Both in the city and its area there is much to see.
There are many museums in Krasnoyarsk, the St. Nicholas steamboat-museum, the museum-estate of V.I. Surikov, the literary museum named after V.P. Astafyev located in a beautiful mansion in the Art Nouveau style, built in the 19th century.
With a personal guide you can not only see all the main attractions of the city, but also go on an excursion to the Pillars reserve. These are very picturesque places where, among the dense taiga, stone boulders of bizarre shape, called pillars, are located.
