1st May in Barnaul, Siberia

No, it's not a photothread about the communist holiday (1st May), just a nice day when I walked with my camera.

I like the days in May when the young leafs at the woods and there is not as hot still, like in some summer hot days...

Let's begin from the hollywood-like letters BARNAUL at the city entry, as looking from the new bridge.


City view looking from the bridge


Recently opened Parus Business Centre


a sort of skyline




One of the central streets


Znamenskaya Church and modern view...


In this walking I have found this neglected house


looks interesting to me


It would be great if they would reconstruct it...


One of the old trade streets


Pomestie Shopping Centre


A wooden house at a street's corner in the old town


One of the oldest survived department store in Barnaul, opened in the pre-revolutionary times, called Krasny (Red), just because of bricks colour


In an alley


Ulitka Hotel


Korolenko Street


A 19th century house


The tulips


Here is located City Duma (City Hall)


Anatoliya St.


A nicely restorated building


I like such contrasts


Another quiet street


the old wooden houses district


But city's growing, so some of them is demolshing gradually. It's OK, because there are many of them still in the city centre.


Some residential buildings at Partizanskaya Str.


The Lenin Avenue Boulevard.




A cafe with mexican cuisine


and finally...

Very nice photos, Siberian. I've seen Barnaul before, also from your threads about it, and each time it looks better & better

This is a beautiful waterfront, hope to see some sort of skyline rise there in the coming years!



I gotta start saving money for my long-planned Trans-Siberian trip, from Vladivostok to Moscow.

I love the colors. I hope they save the wooden homes. The Mexican Restaurant in the middle of Siberia is odd. The Mexicans are taking over the world. ;-)

Unfortunately, Barnaul isn't on Trans-Siberian railroad, it's located 230 km south of it.

Cool, thanks for the pictures. I assume this is your city. I love pictures that bring out the character of the place. Good job and great set. Nice city.

Thanks.
Sure, this is my city. I was born in Barnaul and still live here. These are the places on the photos in my city where I like to walk. There are many another interesting places in my city for sure, but that wasn't my purpose to show all of them.

Cool, I see there are quite a few nice cars in many of your photographs. How do the average person afford them? I was under the impression the economy wasn't that good, and salaries aren't that high.

Very nice looking place.

The two things that surprise me are the Mexican restaurant and what appears to be white-painted bases of trees on Lenin Avenue.
I've seen a few rural (usually black) people paint the bases of their trees white like that here, but I didn't know people did that in other countries.

So where's the snow? j/k

I remember many of the buildings from your previous threads. I too like the contrast of the old and new. Nice colors on some of the old gems. And you even tossed in some grit. Fun tour, thanks Siberian.

Yes, our region (Altai Krai) is less wealthy than the neighbours in the West Siberia. There are not high salaries etc. But anyway. Barnaul is the capital of region and there are much private businesses. So those businessmen may afford those cars.

I myself have no car still (I'm not a businessman ). If I will stay in Barnaul further I would buy a used Japan car like Toyota Corolla, it's possible for me to buy it on credit.

Nice question! You know... I don't know why they do it Maybe for some disinfection after spring?
