The Eastern entrance to Stolby opened on the 1st of December 2020 after reconstruction. The territory of the entrance was fully landscaped. Now at the entrance to the national park there is a parking area for 114 cars, a warm toilet and a baby care room — this is the same pavilion as the one in Gremyachaya Griva.
