    This arch is similar to many in other russian cities, but it is still impressive. Walk along the entire park to see all the tanks and military hardware.

    You can't miss this church as it close to other sights in the city, and is where many buses and trolley buses turn around. Beautiful inside and out, particularly on a bright sunny day.

    This is a classic orthodox monastery - a few churches, some residence buildings for monks and pilgrims and so on. In terms of architecture the monastery is quite simple. The impressive fact is that the main buildings were destroyed in the Soviet period and were restored in 1990-2000s.
    There is a spring of holy water sanctified by the icon of the Virgin Mary that miraculously appeared there.
    The surrounding nature is gorgeous. The view from the top of the hill (close to the entrance) is stunning. The river is very clean and full of fish.
    The fact that it is a monastery is a bit disturbing though as Russian church is characterised by a somewhat strange dress-code - women are supposed to wear only skirts or dresses and to cover their head. If you are not dressed "properly" you'd better avoid going into church as it is likely that you will hear a dissapproving remark from the church staff. Nevertheless, the monastery is worth a visit.

    I've been very surprised to encounter some Gothic building in Kursk. Totally worth it to leave usual touristic route Radischeva -- Lenina streets.

    It can be seen from the other side of the street. This improves the street scape.an architect would write a better revue.

    The architecture is already worthy the visitation. I'm not sure if it's a good choice for tourists who don't speak russian, because most of the attractions are in russian language.

    It is a nice copy of the tower. It is the entrance of this cafe, Cafe Si de Paris. This is the best cafe of this small town.

    It is on the way to the bus station. There isn't much on the city. So this is a must to visit. People are very friendly.

    This interesting museum with good archeological collection is situated in one of the oldest building in the city. The exposition shows the rich history of the region inhabited by different ethnic groups with their own culture and everyday life.
    The entry fee is rather low - 50 roubles per person. There are special offers and free days for schoolchidren.

    This Museum centres on a reconstruction of the Command Bunker of Konstantin Konstantinovich Rossokovsky, commander of the Central Front during Operation Zitadelle, the abortive german offensive of July 1943.
    In addition to the bunker, there is a an exhibition hall with displays covering the personnel, equipment and action of the command post during the battle.
    Outside there are , inevitably, monuments to the soldiers of the time, and a small display of military hardware, regrettably not all contemporary.
    As Russian museums go this is positively petite - but interesting!
    If you're interested enough to be in the area - worth a visit.

    It has always seemed a little weird to me to have a big street running right through a big square. The house of Soviets and Lenin are on one side.
