This was strange like one we saw in the Czech Republic or perhaps Bratislava, can't remember. A statue of a man, the plumber, coming out of a manhole. Interesting but not at -31 which was the temperature when we saw it.

This is one of several street sculptures that will surprise you as you walk around Omsk center - a man (Stepan) coming up out of a manhole

One of THE mementos of Omsk is a snapshot next to Stepan the Plumber, a permanent feature of the picturesque Lenin Street. You won't want to pass him by! He is always there, sticking his head out of the ground!

Our map showed us a different street, it is actually just on the main road of the city. Once we found it it was great to take pictures with!

Place to do good photos. Not difficult to find (if it's not under the snow). Across the street you can find more monuments where it's possible to make good photos.

This is a small symbol of the city. Is on Lubinsky Avenue, where just a pleasant stroll. The statue itself - a plumber who comes out of the hatch. He can take a photo. Next to him there are other statues, such as Luba.

This is a must-see. I was first introduced to it 10 years ago and was heartened to see Stepan still smiling at all the passers-by a decade later.
