Yenisey River

If you have some time in Kranoyarsk and got tired of the city center, you can walk from the railway station along Yenisey river and to the 350-year Anniversary square (located opposite of Krasnoyarsk Hotel).
This square is a popular entertainment spot along local people and there are many open cafes during summer. Also, near this square there's Regional Studies Museum and it's easy to take a taxi to Stolby national park (costs about €20, takes 30 minutes).
Museum itself by the way is also worth visiting if you are interested in local history. Regional Studies Museum. Address: 84, Dubrovinskogo street. Open: Thurs. 10.00-21.00, rest of the days 10.00-18.00, Mo. closed.

The walk along Enisey is quite nice, especially that it is calm and picturesque (the way it can be picturesque in a city). Continue the walk till so called "Strelka" (the crossing of three streets). 

First you will pass Saint Nikolai ship-museum famous because Lenin traveled on it into exile. Moreover there are some temporarily exhibitions happening from time to time, so check it out.
