Pleasant walk

Well made walkway along the riverbank. The water appears quite clear. Fishing occurs and there are cruises and bars to be enjoyed. The bars are OK but not flash.

Visiting Siberia you must reach the Enisey river that divides it into eastern and western parts. The focal point of the Enisey is Krasnoyarsk a city that was closed to foreigners until 1989 because of its rich military industrial complex. The Enisey is one of the world greatest rivers, majestic and commanding with a strong flow south to north. It's... More

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

Due to the hot water let by the nearby power plant the water of the river is always warm and it never freezes in winter. The hot water also gives a picturesque view in the winter causing fog over the river.

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

Enisey river has lots of tributes. The largest one is river... More

Many years ago I was with my dad canoed this great river. We started at one end of the city of Krasnoyarsk and finished in another. I'll always remember that day. 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

The center piece of Krasnoyarsk. Go on the pedestrian bridge from Mira Street over to Tatishev island and feel the awesome power of this majestic river. A must see in Krasnoyarsk .
