Krasnoyarsk sightseeing bus started operation
In Krasnoyarsk, there is now a bus designed exclusively for excursions, the first of its kind. It was specially branded for this purpose. Two main symbols of the city – the Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Сhapel and the Yenisei river – are depicted on it. The bus is also decorated with a new slogan – “Krasnoyarsk is the soul and power of Siberia!”.
The tourist information center has already prepared two excursions for residents and guests of the city: the ecological excursion to the Eastern entrance to the “Stolby” nature reserve and an sightseeing tour to the historical center of the city.
During the excursion to the Eastern entrance to the nature reserve “Stolby” participants will be led onto the observation deck, which offers a beautiful view of the complex of rocks, including Takmak rock. Here, in a granite quarry, syenite stone used to be mined for the Communal Bridge. Thanks to the picturesque natural relief and the new ecological footpath, the Eastern entrance is becoming a favorite place for walks and various photo shoots.
The route of another bus tour passes through the historical center of Krasnoyarsk and includes a visit to the monument to the founder of the city, Andrey Dubensky, the Paraskeva Pyatnitsa chapel, Mira Square, Revolution Square and Theater Square.
The first and quite successful exam for the sightseeing bus was held on November 28-29 as part of the XIV Krasnoyarsk City Forum. These days 4 excursions were conducted, the participants of which were greeted by the Mayor of Krasnoyarsk Sergey Vasilyevich Yeremin.
Tours on a regular basis will be held from December 1 on Wednesdays at 19:00 and Saturdays at 12:00. Start and end of excursions will be near the Triumphal Arch (Mira prospect, 3). The cost of the tour is 250 rubles per person.
