Kemerovo

Kemerovo is a major city in the southwest of Siberia, situated where the Western Siberian Plain meets the South Siberia Mountains in Russia. Kemerovo, also known as ‘Kuzbass’, is well-known for being one of the many stop-offs on the world-famous Trans-Siberian Railway; many taking the epic overland journey to or from Moscow choose to pause here for a break or quick look around the city. Most of the key attractions are located around the city center, including the well-photographed Lenin Square (containing Lenin Monument), a reminder of the city’s Soviet past, as well as a small collection of museums and art galleries. Other popular activities around Kemerovo are set aside for the colder months when the city’s population and passing visitors choose to head into the surrounding countryside for activities such as snowboarding, skiing, ice skating, fishing and hunting.

Experiences

Krasnaya Gorka Museum Preserve

This museum is one of the most popular on town, located near the center. Alongside some interesting exhibitions detailing the industrial history of Kemerovo, the museum also presents some superb views across the Tom River and a nice parkland area towards the back.

Lenin Square (or ‘Soviet Square’)

Marking the short but hugely significant Soviet rule of Kemerovo, Lenin Square is situated right at the heart of the city. Whilst this isn’t a major attraction in itself, the Lenin Monument within the square does provide a good photo opportunity, and also provides a reminder of the history of Kemerovo.

Skiing/snowboarding

There is a small collection of ski resorts dotted around the Kemerovo region, with the best placed around 10-30 miles away from the city center. Skiing altitudes here range from 2,000 – 4,000 feet and the resorts are well-catered for in terms of ski lifts, parking, restaurants and accommodation.

Tom River

Dissecting the city of Kemerovo through its middle is the Tom River, a picturesque spot to come for some of the best views of the city. Other popular activities here include picnics and fishing - activities usually only reserved for locals.
