A must for visitors of Novosibirsk

A stop at Lenin square is an absolute must for all first-time visitors of Novosibirsk. Have a stroll around, also on the other side of the busy street passing by.

This apparently is where everyone hangs out on a nice evening. Includes the mandatory Lenin statue, the nearby opera house, and lots of open space. Surprised to see so many skateboards.

Interesting square with nice statues next to the Opera, but nothing to go out of your way to get to. But if you are walking by, you should make a short stop!

Basic square with a statue of Lenin you find in almost every soviet city. Nice parks near the square and easy to get to by metro. Good place to get a few photos. There are nice small shops near the metro entrance in the tunnel.

A large and beautiful space with the large Opera and Ballet Theatre as a back drop, there are huge statues gracing the centre that date back to Soviet times, surrounded by historical buildings including the Novosibirsk Museum, there are beautiful formal gardens in the centre and it is a great place to walk and relax both winter and summer, recently...

At first I was put off by Novasibirsk due to working at a hockey arena and it seemed the staff and players hated Americans and gave our crew nothing but trouble..along with dry ice to chill our drinks. The next day I walked to the park, memorial park, Lenin Square, The House Of Lenin, and the Cathedral. A nice half... More

The centre of the city with an attractive, although scaffolded when I was there this time, opera house. The Lenin and revolutionary/worker statues in front of the square looked a tad fearsome with sinister storm clouds brewing behind them and the rain starting to fall during my recent visit. The statues are spectular in their own right but make for... More
