I arrived in Tomsk on Friday, and spent the weekend exploring and adjusting to the time difference (14-hours ahead of Kamloops, although only five hours ahead of Central Europe, where I had spent ten days before heading to Russia). Just wanted to post, here, the photos from the square adjacent to 44 Lenin Avenue. This square includes several monuments to victims of Soviet repression. It’s relatively unusual in Russia to have these types of monuments in such a prominent location (44 Lenin is directly across from the mayor’s office). This post contains photos of the monuments:
