Krasnoyarsk

4.5
Famed for its scenic location, Krasnoyarsk so impressed author Anton Chekhov that he considered it Siberia's most appealing city, describing it as a "picturesque, cultured town." A convenient pit stop for passengers making the trans-Siberian journey, the city serves as the country's major railway junction halfway between Moscow and Vladivostok. Although most of its buildings date from the Soviet era, Krasnoyarsk also features several historical churches, fine examples of Russian Orthodox architecture. A sprawling nature reserve--the city's main tourist attraction--covers an area of over 470 sq km (180 sq mi), its giant rock formations attracting adventurous climbers from around the world. If you prefer something less extreme, take a boat tour on the Yenisei River. Krasnoyarsk is in Krasnoyarsk Krai. Take a look at our Russia day trip site to refine the details of your trip to Krasnoyarsk.
