Take bus 50 or 50A to this humane zoo near the Bobrovy Log Ski Resort to see numerous Siberian species.
The Surikov Museum-Estate preserves the house, sheds and vegetable patch of 19th-century painter Vasily Surikov (1848–1916). The heavy-gated garden forms a refreshing oasis of rural Siberia right in the city centre...
Housed in an incongruously attractive 1912 art nouveau Egyptian temple, this is one of Siberia’s better museums...
For some spectacular city views climb Karaulnaya Hill (there's no bus) to the little chapel which features on the Russian 10-rouble banknote (now slowly being replaced with a coin)...
This quaint museum within a glorious 1911 merchant’s mansion occasionally hosts classical music performances.
This pleasingly small old church dating from 1795 has an interior of unusually glossed and intricately moulded stucco framing haloed saints.
More of Surikov’s work is on show at the cute Surikov Art Museum .
