Kansk is an old city founded in the 17th century as an outpost to protect from attacks of nomads. It is situated on the banks of the picturesque river Kan at approximately 200 km from Krasnoyarsk.

The locality fascinates tourists with beautiful parks, museums with valuable exhibits and a film fest of its own ( not worse than that in Cannes). The easiest way to reach it is to rent a car.

Why do tourists prefer to travel on rented car?

Things to do in Kansk

Hašek’s fans would like to visit the famous Czech writer’s house. It was here that he got the image of the Good Soldier Švejk. There is a commemorative plaque on the building, but it is not a museum.

The ancient drama theater has already celebrated its centenary. Its scene has seen lots of celebrities exiled to the town during Stalin's regime.

The main temple of the city is the Trinity Cathedral. It’s under protection as a valuable architecture monument.

Art objects are the town’s landmark. One of them is the Palm lane with "exhibits" created by young artists. Here you can find giant vegetables, fruit and human figures — they all are bright and original crafts.

"The Bell Tower" is a bit strange 8-metre structure made of logs, inside which is located a mechanism to imitate bell tolling.

The Monument to the Unknown Artist according to the legends fulfills all the desires. To make your dream come true, you need to pat it on the head.

The huge    portrait sculpture of Yermak, conqueror of Northern lands is installed near the building of the Local Lore Museum.

Once the entrance to the town was decorated with “Tsar’s gates” - a tall arch with turrets. It was destroyed during the Soviet era, but not so long ago was reconstructed. All tourists take photo near this monumental 15m structure.

In late August the town houses the international film festival. Its prize "resonates" with the reward of a more famous events in Cannes. Organizers called the award "Golden Palm Pruner”

Fans of winter sports are sure to like it in the ski resort with several tracks.
