"Third largest city in Siberia" Krasnoyarsk by angelochka

Krasnoyarsk Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 50 photos

The 119m Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric dam, located on the Yenisey river within 30 km upstream from Krasnoyarsk, was finished in 1964 and supplies 6000MW of power (sorry, took this info from Wikipedia), anyway to me it looked powerful and impressive enough!

Construction of the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric dam greatly impacted the local climate. Before the dam was built, the Yenisey in that area was free from ice for around 196 days per year; now it remains free from ice for the whole year, because of that local climate is more warm and humid.

    Yes, sadly Russia only won one game at Euro 2004...but they were the only country that beat the champions Greece! :-) They played well that day! :-) The Krasnoyarsk Dam looks very impressive!

    You must be much younger than the Krasnoyarsk Hydroelectric Dam!
