Krasnoyarskie Stolby nature reserve

A beautiful nature reserve called Krasnoyarskiye Stolby or “Krasnoyarsk Pillars" can be found only four kilometers away from the city of Krasnoyarsk in Siberia. Here, thousands of rocky cliffs lie scattered in the Siberian taiga. Geologically speaking, the pillars are made of magma that cooled millions of years ago without making it to the surface. Several hundred rocks polished by wind and rain are concentrated in a fairly small area. Not one of them is more than a hundred meters tall. Discover the beauty of the nature reserve on RT!
