This sculpture, located at the entrance of the touristic section called "130 Kvartal" has nothing special, not even an artistic value. Babr is said to be the ancient local name for a tiger and it symbolizes the uniqueness, richness and power of the area while...More

There is the most amazing shopping area referred to as 130th District. You can buy the real McCoy reindeer boots here. Great restaurants and coffee/cake shops to die for. It stretches out ove quite a distance and ends at a 3 level modern shopping mall.

Enjoyed this statue of a creative take on Siberia, with the tiger-like creature representing strength and the weasel-like animal representing the great natural wealth of the area.

It is sort mandatory to see the monument to a non-existing animal. Best part is watching little kids pose with it. Also sits in front of nice mall.
