Main artery of the city – Sovetskaya street. Here are the main administrative buildings of Orenburg and Orenburg region. It would seem that there can be interesting for tourists? But do not pass by: the residence of the head of the city is one of the most beautiful buildings, built in the early XX century. Columns, powerful Atlanta "supporting" the roof of the tower, the pylons – all this magnificence you can enjoy forever. Just a couple of blocks and you are in front of the regional administration (House of Soviets). Despite the fact that it was built on the site of destroyed in the early 30-ies of the last century, the Orthodox Cathedral, it also has a known value as a monument of architecture. Council building can be best admired in the evening, when luxurious illumination turns it into a fairy Palace. And working almost around the clock in summer, the fountain in the square near the administration only reinforces this impression. From the House Councils and to the banks of the Ural main street is a pedestrian zone with many historical monuments, museums, shops and small squares. And here, too, without contrasts not done.
