At the site of the death of actor Mikhail Evdokimov, known for leading roles in such films as "About the businessman Thomas", "Do not send us ... a messenger?", "Do not be foolish", on the highway Barnaul-Biysk, in 2006, was built Chapel of St. Michael. There's a little photo break waiting for you.

In the old place.

You'll be hungry by the time you get to Biysk. Visit the restaurant "On the old place", which is located in the building of the hotel of the same name. Your car can be parked here in the hotel parking lot. Sovetskaya Street, on which the restaurant is located, is otherwise called Biyskiy Arbat, so your lunch will be held here - in one of the main historical centers of the city. Feel like an ancient merchant walking the Silk Road, a tired traveller carrying goods from faraway Mongolia and staying for refreshments.

Старый Центр

Historic Sites


The city just breathes history, the area was built by the project of Nicholas I. The houses have been well preserved due to the construction method of "cast brick". It consists in checking the strength of the bricks by dropping them from the height. A walk through the historic centre awaits you. At the beginning of the walk you will see the Assumption Cathedral, built in the traditional Russian-Byzantine style, which locals call the "Pearl of the city". The address of the cathedral: 13 Sovetskaya Street. Very close to the cathedral, at 9 Sovetskaya St., there is a building of Pedagogical University, located in the building of merchants Morozovs. At the beginning of the street you will find the Merchant's House of Rozhdestvensky, where at different times there were sales halls, a printing shop and even a female gymnasium. And here, right next door, is the monument to Peter I. The city was built according to the project of Nicholas I, but was founded by Peter I. The copper monument rises in the park named after Nicholas I, but the city was also built by Peter I. The copper monument rises in Garkavoy Square, within the boundaries of L. Tolstoy Street, Kirov Ave., Sovetskaya Street, Dvoinnykh Street, two minutes walk from the House of the Merchant Rozhdestvensky.
