The reserve was founded in 1925 on the initiative of the residents of Krasnoyarsk to preserve natural systems around the picturesque syenite residual outcrops – pillars. Today, its area is 47,219 hectares.
The rocks called “stolby” (“pillars”) are the main attraction of the reserve. The residents and guests of Krasnoyarsk visit this amazing place for recreation and sports.
