It is not excatly a tourist trap, but It can be quite hard to find the street you need for there is no map of Zorinsk on sale (it is only available at the mayor's desk as a drawing).

Unique Suggestions: ask the locals to show you the way.
You can try to address the locals in Russian, '"Izvinite, kak prayti na ulitsu ...."
(Excuse me, how do I get to .............Street).

Fun Alternatives: Here is the list of the town streets I have found out:


There are more than 50 streets in Zorinsk. Some of them are quite short.
Some of them bear the names of Russian and Ukrainian poets and writers:
Pushkin Street, Gogol Street, Nekrassov Street, Lesya Ukrainika Street, Shevchenko Street, Levanevsky Lane;
Others were called after the Russian and Soviet heroes: Suvorov Street , Kutuzov Street, Matrossov Street, Mayakovsky Street, Lenin Street, Marx Street , Kirov Street, Kirov Street, Tikhomirov Street, Vatutin Street , Petrovsky Lane, Chapayev Street, Kalinin Street, Zhdanov Street.
Many other streets bear more neutral names such as:
May Day Street, Station Street, October Street, Theater Street, 40 Years of Victory Block, Road Street, Railway Street, Sovietskaya Street, Sports Street, Steppe Street, Baker’s Street, Leningrad Street, Leningrad Lane, Transport Street, Coal Street, Coalminers Street, State Farm Lane, Zarechnaya Street, Zhilovka Street.

There are 17 apartment houses at 40 Years of Victory Block
