With impoising statues of red guards standing in front of Opera, this square is very impressive and bbeautiful. Museum is within walking distance and nice buildings and church are surrounding the square. A must to visit in Novosibirsk

Very wide, big, and crowded in the summer, Lenina Square is definitely dedicated to the great revolutionary leader: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. Expect to see concerts from time to time there as well as street shows.
