Novosibirsk, Russia - 26th January 2008

By: Cosmica

We also visited festival of snow figures. Such festivals are held every year for people from various cities and even countries. For example, this camel (looks a bit bizarre I should say) was made by masters from Kazakhstan.

And here you can see the House of Lenin (it is a Russian tradition to have streets, theaters, squares etc. named after Lenin and Marks). It belongs to Novosibirsk Philharmonic Hall and we are going there soon to the second Tayga Siberian Ethno Festival. I'm looking forward to it.

To the left you can see geographic center of Novosibirsk marked wich a chapel that stands just in the middle of the main Novosibirsk road - Krasny Prospect. Some say it marks geographic center of Russia but it is not know for sure.

And the last picture for today seems absolutely spring-like, almost no snow. I definitely like this city, you never know for sure what season it is :0)
