This was strange like one we saw in the Czech Republic or perhaps Bratislava, can't remember. A statue of a man, the plumber, coming out of a manhole. Interesting but not at -31 which was the temperature when we saw it.

One of THE mementos of Omsk is a snapshot next to Stepan the Plumber, a permanent feature of the picturesque Lenin Street. You won't want to pass him by! He is always there, sticking his head out of the ground!
