It was the city center during the communism. Still there are the city hall (stalinist architecture) and the Lenin statue. Interesting.

the 1905 square or simply square if just after the river bank. Beautiful ice sculptures in form of cake and a huge Christmas tree which I followed via webcams was removed only some days before. Not unusual that identical to all other Russian cities you will find a Lenin statue in the central square of the city, also here in Yekaterinburg!
The square is far less impressive compare to smaller cities like Ulan Ude. The other downside is that the square is mainly used as parking!
Anyway who can visit a Russian city and not Lenin square?

Stand at this square and just turning your eyes. It is the city - old buildings (for YEkaterinburg) of XIX century, new buildings, the building of city administration, decorated in "socialistic realism" style. The Lenin monument on the old foundation of the demolished cathedral. On the corner of streets - one of the oldest stone buildings of YEkaterinburg, now it is academy of music. At the new year the square is decorated with christmas tree and the glacial figures.

Just a square, some beautiful architecture but nowhere to sit and enjoy it from. But at New Year the place transforms, with light shows, music and an ice city. Then it is another world!
