Sovietskaya Street is truly the heart of the city and the main tourist attraction. It is a tree-lined pedestrian promenade, which runs through the center of the downtown shopping district.  

It was laid out in the mid-19th century and in the 1970s it was closed to traffic and now is lined with shops, restaurants and outdoor cafes.
