We are on the river Tom bank now. The embankment is very popular place for walking.
In the middle of the embankment you can see The eternal flame at the Monument to honour the heroes of the Great Patriotic War. People call it “file” because of its shape. Here the newly married couples lay a flowers on. And in my school years there was “the post number one”. Young Komsomol members were standing near the memorial armed and immobile even in nipping frost.
On the opposite bank of the river Tom you can see large yellow letter “Kuzbass”. The locals call them “our Hollywood”.
The square with a singing fountain is a favorite meeting place of Kemerovo residents.
Vesennaya (means Spring) street is a surprisingly beautiful Boulevard.
So it's the opposite edge of Vesennyaya avenue — the Volkov's Square. Michailo Volkov discovered coal here, in Kuzbass. His monument holds a coal stone. There is a student legend about this monument. It says that Volkov will fall a stone if a virgin graduates from the Polytechnic Institute.
The distance between Kemerovo and Moscow is 3621 km. You will need 56 hours in order get Moscow by train. So, I recommend to flight.
