We invite you to visit Yeniseisk - a unique city-monument, having as many as 400 years of history. The cultural and spiritual center of the Krasnoyarsk Territory was founded as a military fortress by Cossacks, pioneers in the development of Siberia. Our tour involves a detailed acquaintance with the architecture of the historic city center, taken under the protection of UNESCO. You will learn why Yeniseysk was called Belokamenny(White stoned city) and visit several ancient churches and monasteries (including the Assumption Church, Trinity Church and the Epiphany Cathedral, as well as the unique ensemble of the Spassky Monastery), which have the glory of the most ancient and majestic places in the region. Many places of worship were ruined in Soviet times and, after a long and painstaking work of the restorer, are ready to accept the parishioners. Modern city museums are world famous and can involve not only viewing exhibits, but also the interactive part: during a visit to the photo izba (Photo hut) you will feel the life of local residents of the tsarist times, and the museum of planes is not only a collection of instruments, but also a collection of records that you can listen to on an old but fully functional gramophone. The excursion to Yeniseisk includes a walking tour of the historic center and a visit to the impressive promenade, attractive for walking and photo shoots, as well as a trip to Monastyrskoe Lake, located 35 km from Yeniseisk. The road to Yeniseisk is not a short one, but, believe us, you won’t be bored during it, and you can visit the Holy Trinity Church in the village of Kazachinsky and follow the miraculous icon of the Kazan Mother of God.
