One of my favourite places in Novosibirsk, Ploshad' Lenina. Great place to relax on one of the benches if the weather is nice or go get tickets to see Russian Ballet! Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theatre is right there!

This apparently is where everyone hangs out on a nice evening. Includes the mandatory Lenin statue, the nearby opera house, and lots of open space. Surprised to see so many skateboards.

A stop at Lenin square is an absolute must for all first-time visitors of Novosibirsk. Have a stroll around, also on the other side of the busy street passing by.
