Brief description: The excursion includes a visit to the historic city of Yeniseisk. Yeniseysk was founded as a prison in 1619 and thanks to its favorable geographical position quickly became an administrative and economic centre of Eastern Siberia. That is the starting platform of the movement of Russian explorers to the south and east. Yeniseysk was a cultural centre of the Yenisei province for a long time. The historical centre of the city has been included in the preliminary list of the World Heritage by UNESCO since 2000. The territory of the city embraces its cultural heritage: the Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Saviour (founded in 1642), the Epiphany Cathedral (1738-1764), the Church of the Ascension (1735-1747), the Trinity Church (1772-1776), the Assumption Church (1793-1818) , the building of the Yenisei Museum of Local History (1747-1753) and other architectural monuments. The architectural appearance of the monastic buildings was largely shaped by the influence of Siberian baroque. A special atmosphere, the spirit of the city is created not only by Orthodox churches, merchant houses and unique architectural objects, the planning structure of the Siberian city but also by its natural microclimate. Yeniseysk can be truly called the spirit of the Krasnoyarsk Territory!
