You can take a tram from the Town of KGB Servicemen to Ploschad 1905 Goda (1905 Goda Square), just two or three stops along Prospekt Lenina (Lenina Avenue).

Ploschad 1905 Goda is the oldest and most important square in the city. The square is named in honour of the events that took place here in 1905: on October 19, the Bolsheviks organised a rally after Emperor Nicholas II issued a manifesto establishing a parliament – the State Duma – in Russia. However, the peaceful rally was broken up by the Black Hundreds group of extreme monarchists.
