Krasnoyarsk is a fascinating city and there are a lot of things to see and do here. The history of our city goes back to the 17th century. It used to be a fort intended to protect the frontier from attacks of native people who lived along the Yenisey river. The fort was named “Krasniy Yar” which meant “red steep-riverbank”.
Nowadays Krasnoyarsk is the largest industrial and cultural centre of Eastern Siberia. The city lies on the banks of the Yenisey river — one of the most beautiful and powerful rivers of Russia. The population of the city is about 980,000 citizens. The city is notable for its architecture. There are a number of churches and historical buildings in Krasnoyarsk dating back to the 19th century.
