Krasnoyarsk

  Krasnoyarsk is a million-city and the third largest city in Siberia after Novosibirsk and Omsk. It is the administrative centre of the Krasnoyarsk Territory - Russia’s second largest subject. It is the largest city on the River Yenisey, which never freezes here due to its proximity to the Krasnoyarsk Hydroelectric Dam. On the outskirts of the city are the Sayan Mountains and the Stolby Nature Reserve. The city is depicted on the RUB 10 banknote, which is in the progress of being replaced by a coin.
