Observation deck "Tsar-fish "
Where we are going: an observation deck with a sculptural composition "Tsar-fish" near the village of Ovsyanka
Distance from Krasnoyarsk: 20 km
Travel time (round trip) : up to 1 hour
This is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the suburbs of Krasnoyarsk. At the beginning of the observation deck there is a recreation area, where you can walk along wooden paths past gazebos and pines and then climb to the "center of gravity" - the sculpture "Tsar Fish". It is dedicated to the same name story by Viktor Petrovich Astafiev. We highly recommend reading it. The novel tells about the responsibility of a human for all living things around them and about the striving for peace and harmony, not only in the external world, but also in the soul. This will help you to feel why this sculptural composition is located here, among the power and expanses of the banks of the Yenisei.
The site is equipped with benches, waste bins, a clean and free toilet, free and large parking, cafes and souvenir shops.
How to get there?
the observation deck is located on the highway between Krasnoyarsk and Divnogorsk. From the right bank of Krasnoyarsk we are moving towards Divnogorsk, along the Yenisei road R-257. There is a tourist navigation sign in front of the turn to the platform, you will not pass it seeing a large parking lot on the right side.
