At the moment, it doesn`t work but long time ago people could learn about the weather. The weather station it is a square, green pavilion about two meters in high. The station is decorated with golden bas-reliefs. On the top of the station there is a beautiful golden sculpture.
The meteorological station was established in 1914 on the street Malaya Konyushennaya for weather observation and collecting the statistics. In 30th years the station was moved to another place.

However, the station doesn`t work and now it`s simple monument to the technical development of the country in the field of the weather observation.
