The local tomatoes, onions, potatoes, and cucumbers were lush and luscious, and despite living in huge apartment blocks, many Krasnoyarsk residents have a little garden plot down along the bluff over the River Yenesei.
This little chapel sits atop the hill from which the panorama of the city was taken.
