Lovely promenade along the river. However, we wanted to visit the dam and ship lift, but after struggling with a lack of Russian (by us) and English (by everyone else) we found that the hydrofoil to the town by the dam was not running. Furthermore, if we got there, the taxi to the dam would cost 500 roubles each. Then... More

My first visit to Krasnoyarsk, my first visit to Russia infact, and what a pleasant surprise this was. Looking at the Yenisei from the lookout point somewhere around Divnogorsk, it seemed surreal as it was like watching one of the NatGeo series. The river looked pristine and the water clear. I was quite surprised however when my local guide told... More

The Yenisei river is very powerful and strong river. It is not as wide as, for example, the Volga, but more affluent. This is the river arrow, river-bullet.Starting in... More

One of Russia's great rivers, it runs through the city. choose one of the bridges to walk over it. SOme of the most picturesque places are the bank near the Conservatory where ulitsa Mira starts with its quaint old houses, and the place where Lenin's steamboat is on display.
