After our early morning arrival at the Krasnoyarsk station, we have a free morning to rest and settle into the hotel before lunch and a tour of this city located on the Yenisei River. The city is known for its nature landscapes; author Anton Chekhov judged Krasnoyarsk to be the most beautiful city in Siberia. It is the third largest after Novosibirsk and Omsk, with a population of over one million.
We have a free evening, and several of us go to dinner at a beautiful restaurant named for the author Mikhail Bulgakov, just a couple of blocks from our hotel. A wonderful day. Tomorrow we begin the long train trip to Irkutsk and beautiful Lake Baikal. We’re all looking forward to a highlight of the tour!
