From the Telegraph's Pictures of the Day for 2 January 2013: A woman walks with her child on the banks of the Yenisey River near the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk in air temperatures of about minus 30 degrees Celsius. [Ilya Naymushin/Reuters]Anton Chekhov regarded Krasnoyarsk as the most beautiful city in Siberia. I can see why.
He wrote in a letter: "As one comes down to Krasnoyarsk one seems to be getting into a different world. You come out of the forest into a plain which is like our Donets steppe, but here the mountain ridges are grander. The sun shines its very best."
