Why not visit the Calmius Embankment near Constitution Square? The city stands on the River Calmius, a southern tributary of the Seversky Donets. There is a water reserve on the river. People also try to fish there. There must be some fish for we saw wild ducks and a seagull when we had coffee at “Shell” fish tavern located right at the riverbank. There is a tiny city beach to the right of the bridge.

Walk along the Calmius embankment and then up to Lenin Square and Artiom Street, the main thoroughfare of the city. You will see a replica of the Czar Cannon that stands in the Kremlin in Moscow. The replica was commissioned in Izhevsk, Russia, in 2001 and was presented to the people of the Donets Basin as a symbol of the inviolable friendship of the Russian and the Ukrainian peoples. The Ukrainian version of the Czar Cannon stands in Artem Street - the central street of Donetsk.

Visiting Coalminers Square that is located at the beginning of the main street is a must for a city visitor. You can see a very special and unique coalminer monument, the new chapel and watch the busy traffic at that junction.

Driving around Donetsk, you will be surprised to see numerous construction sites almost everywhere in Donetsk now. Even in the Old City, brand new apartment houses are being built and put into operation.

I would not call these apartments very cheap. The apartments on the 18th floor of the brand new apartment house at 155d Artem Street are the most expensive ones: 1 sq.m costs about $3,500.

There are many modern and ultramodern buildings in Donetsk now, both office buildings, shopping malls and apartment houses.

Many ultramodern apartment houses are being built now in different districts of the city.
