WELCOME TO KRASNOYARSK

ABOUT KRASNOYARSK


Krasnoyarsk Territory is located in Central Siberia, extending from the Sayan Mountains and the Minusinsk basin in the south across the Siberian wooded steppe, taiga, and tundra to the Arctic Ocean. The territory stretches along the entire course of the Yenisey River, an important transportation route and electric power source. The distance between Moscow and Krasnoyarsk is about 4, 000km.
 

Krasnoyarsk Territory is the second largest Russian region after Sakha (Yakutiya), occupying an area of over 2mln sq. km, which is 13% of the country's total territory. It stretches 3,000 km from north to south. The region lies in the middle of Siberia and shares borders with Tyumen, Tomsk, Irkutsk, and Kemerovo regions, the republics of Khakassiya, Tyva, and Sakha, and the Taymyr Autonomous District in the North.
 

The region is among the richest of Russia's regions in natural resources. 80% of the country's nickel, 75% of its cobalt, 70% of its copper, 16% of its coal, and 10% of its gold are extracted in the region. Krasnoyarsk also produces 20% of the country's timber. The region's major industries are: non-ferrous metallurgy, energy, forestry, chemicals, and oil refining.

The climate of the region is sharply continental, with great fluctuations in temperature in the course of year. As Krasnoyarsk Territory stretches in meridian direction for about 3,000km, the climate is indeed diverse. Central and southern regions of the Territory have long winter, short spring and short and hot summer. Average winter temperature is Ц18C, average summer temperature is +20C.
 

Krasnoyarsk is the center of the vast Krasnoyarsk region, it is the second biggest city in Siberia after Novosibirsk and a powerful industrial center. There are about 950,000 inhabitants.
 

Despite that Krasnoyarsk is a very pleasant city and we definitely recommend you to stop there for a day or two on your way along the Trans-Siberian. Near Krasnoyarsk (20 mins by car from center) there's a national park Stolby - a very diverse natural area with unusual cliffs.
Also, Krasnoyarsk can be a good starting place for trips in Khakasiya and Tuva.
 

The city also amazes with the hospitality of local people Ч a typical Siberian trait, but especially evident in Krasnoyarsk. Everybody: from a bus conductor to a stranger on the street seem to want to make you feel good and proud of their city.
 

Krasnoyarsk lies along Enisey river Ч one of the most beautiful and powerful rivers of Siberia. It is surrounded by mountains, giving a very interesting flavour to the city views.

If you have only a few hours between trains in Krasnoyarsk, you can walk around the city center. The infrastructure is well-developed and there are a lot of cafes, restaurants, and a few 24-hour internet cafes.
 

If you have more than 1 day, you may consider going to the national park Stolby, giving yourself a nice fresh-air break from train journey.
