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."
