There are only 7 cities in Russia, whose types were issued in the largest circulation - on banknotes. Krasnoyarsk - one of them, this honor was awarded to the chapel of Praskeva Pyatnitsa, printed on the front side of the bill, its silhouette is present in the form of a watermark on the wide coupon field of the banknote.

The city is divided by the Yenisei into two parts: its left bank is in Western Siberia, and its right bank is in Eastern. The industrial part of the right bank is very different from the left.

Waterfront Skating Rink

Krasnoyarsk: districts, recreation, excursions, museums and churches, cuisine and restaurants, shopping and shops, Krasnoyarsk sights.

These territories are practically closed for mass tourism. Rarely can anyone boast that he has seen the northern cities of the region with his own eyes, and even more so, the Putorana Plateau, which is famous for the incredible beauty of the pristine nature and the wild world. The correspondent of "AiF-Krasnoyarsk" has learned whether these territories will be able to become a zone of active tourism.

Appreciate the beauty of the North

The potential of the tourist cluster, which is called "Arctic", came to assess the international tour operators.

Representatives of the seven largest travel companies visited Norilsk, Dudinka and the Putorana plateau. The information tour was organized by the Norilsk Development Agency, the Regional Tourism Agency, the international travel agency TUI Group and the Krasnoyarsk Business Development Agency with the support of Norilsk Nickel.

The main goal of the educational journey is to get acquainted with the places where tourists can visit, explore the routes offered to them, and appreciate the beauty of the northern territories for themselves. It is a widespread international practice, when agency representatives independently study the route and then offer trips to clients. All the places visited by the participants are part of the tourist and recreational cluster "Arctic" - a joint work of the ARN, the administration of Norilsk and the Taimyr Dolgan-Nenets municipal district.

As conceived by the developers, the unification of the three territories will attract interest to Taimyr and make tourism more accessible here. An equally important task is to create a new direction of the tourism industry in Norilsk, which will undoubtedly attract investment and give impetus to the creation of new jobs.

There is something to see and taste

Dudinka, for example, offers an ethnographic direction. In the capital of Taimyr, the guests visited the Museum of Local Lore, the City Center of Folk Art and the Taimyr House of Folk Art. A small cruise along the Yenisei - the largest Siberian river, and a visit to an ethnic settlement became a real highlight for visitors. They got acquainted with the history, culture and organization of life of the indigenous and small-numbered peoples of the North.

Industrial and event tourism, as the ideologists of the cluster called it, will give travelers the opportunity to visit the underground training ground, which was created at the corporate university of Norilsk Nickel. And also see the features of the production process of the city-forming enterprise. At the Sever gastronomic festival, guests tasted the cuisine of indigenous peoples, which will certainly arouse the interest of those who go on a tour. In the end, the guests were given a detailed excursion around Norilsk.

Alena Kochanova, director of the Tourist Information Center of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, shared her impressions of what she saw:
