The 10 Best Things to Do in Krasnodar, Russia

December 7, 2017 Emerita Lamoureux

Krasnodar is home to one of the only surviving hyperboloid towers designed by Vladimir Shukhov, who was one of Russia’s most important structural engineers. The steel lattice structure is a cool contrast to the surrounding old world cathedrals and colorful arboretums. Krasnodar has several museums, concert halls and theaters, plus the largest splash fountain in Europe.

Stadium F.C. Krasnodar

Reviewed By YakovTriko - Krasnodar, Russia

This new stadium is from the future! Both the exterior and interior parts look fantastic! I'm not saying that I've seen it all but after visiting such stadiums like Maracana, Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille and Donbass Arena in Donetsk I'm putting Krasnodar Stadium on top. It's a piece of art, amigos! Too bad Krasnodar is not hosting the World Cup...

Sculpture Walking Dogs

Reviewed By RussianSouth - Krasnodar, Russia

The walking dogs sculpture symbolizes two dogs who have their first date after meeting on the corner. You can rub their noses and make a wish. Historical inspiration for this monument was the poem of Valdimir Mayakovskiy. He wrote this poem in 1926 when he saw a bunch of homeless pedigree dogs in Krasnodar. Their owners were killed during the revolution.

Red Street

It's difficult not to give 5 stars to the whole street. Most of the attraction of the city are located if not on this street, then in the very close vicinity of it. Nice to stroll through in the evening - the lights, music playing, people watching. Lovely

The Solnechny Ostrov (Sunny Island) Park

Reviewed By ShanTalarico - Vienna, Austria

If you love nature and you love cycling, I highly reccomend coming to Solnechnyj Ostrov. Here you can rent a bike for a convenient price and cycle around the park!! I did it and, I must say, it was one of the best experiences I've ever had in this town.
And you don't want to ride a bike, you can even enjoy a very nice walk around the park: people of Krasnodar love walking with friends and family on sunny days around this park.

If you are tired of the city air and sounds of the cars, it's a great nature island in the center of the city. There are many trees, you can feed squirrels if you get the nuts with you and pigeons if you have bread. Squirrels eat from hands. After you are done with squirrels you can go to the amusement area, there's a place for climbing which is loved by kids of ages 10-15. Also there are a lot of carousels for little kids, places to eat, the area is nice and clean.
