1st highlight: City tour through Krasnoyarsk
Today we visit the most important sights of Krasnoyarsk, including the "Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel" - an old Russian Orthodox chapel on a mountain with a magnificent panoramic view. From here we enjoy a picturesque view over the city, the river Yenisei, the surrounding mountains and the nature reserve "Stolby".
Then we walk through the historical part of the capital, with its monuments from the 18th century, and look at the Annunciation Cathedral, the Theater Square and much more. After that, we will visit one of the best historical and ethnographic museums in Siberia - the Krasnoyarsk State Museum. Here we find a fabulous exhibition about the indigenous people of Siberia, Russian settlers as well as prehistoric animals.
2nd highlight: visit to the "Stolby" nature reserve
After our lunch together, we drive to the nature reserve "Stolby" and walk a few hours through its beautiful park, which is called the heart of Krasnoyarsk. Here we climb one of the rocks to enjoy the picturesque view of Siberia and the fantastic surroundings. In addition, we have the unique opportunity to look at one of the greatest natural wonders of Siberia - the granite rocks "Stolby", which protrude from the ground like arrows.
