Krasnoyarsk (Russian: Красноярск) is a city and the administrative center of Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, located on the Yenisey River. It is the third largest city in Siberia, with a population of 973,900 according to the 2010 Census. Krasnoyarsk is an important junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway and one of Russia's largest producers of aluminium. The city is notable for its architecture and famous Russian author Anton Chekhov judged Krasnoyarsk as being the most beautiful city in Siberia.
The most popular place of attraction for tourists visiting Krasnoyarsk is the huge national nature reserve Stolby, which covers an area of 470 square kilometers or 180 square miles with numerous giant granite rock formations up to 100 meters in height and of very extraordinary shapes. Stolby is also a major rock climbing location with many local climbers intentionally not using any belaying equipment. They call their extreme sport Stolbizm, - known elsewhere as solo climbing. Other popular destinations include the Krasnoyarsk Hydroelectric Power Station Dam, the Karaulnaya Gora Hill with the Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel, museums and theaters.
An underground system comprised of three lines has been in the planning and construction phases in Krasnoyarsk for decades. The first three stations have not been opened yet, but several construction sites around the city are visible. The system was expected to be finally opened sometime between 2010 to 2012. Krasnoyarsk Railroad Station lies on the Yenisei River and historically has been an important junction on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Krasnoyarsk is also served by Yemelyanovo Airport, located 37 kilometers northwest of the city.
There are a number of historical buildings in Krasnoyarsk, the oldest of them being the Intercession Cathedral (Russian: Покровский собор) built in 1785 to 1795 and restored in 1977 to 1978.

Due to the Krasnoyarsk Hydroelectric Dam situated 32 kilometers or 20 miles upstream, the Yenisei never freezes in winter and never exceeds 14°C or 57°F in summer through the city. Near the city center, its altitude is 136 meters or 446 feet above sea level. There are several islands in the river - the largest of which are Tatyshev and Otdyha Isles, used mainly for recreation.

The most prominent of them are further south being the Nikolayevskaya Sopka - notable for its ski jumping tracks, Karaulnaya Gora and Chornaya Sopka, the latter being an extinct volcano.
The gigantic rock cliffs of the Stolby Nature Reserve rise from the mountains of the southern bank of Yenisey, the western hills form the Gremyachaya Griva Crest extending westwards up to the Sobakina River, the north is generally plain, except for the Drokinskaya Sopka Hill, with forests to the northwest and agricultural fields to the north and east. The major rivers of the Krasnoyarsk city area are the Yenisey, the Mana, the Bazaikha and the Kacha Rivers, the latter flowing throughout the historical center of the city.
