Downtown Irkutsk

The city, founded in 1661, is a major industrial, cultural, and educational center in Eastern Siberia. However, travelers are more attracted by its calm atmosphere and architectural variety. In the center, you will see a lot of old wooden houses, decorated with marvelous lacework carvings.

The square around the monument to Alexander III on the Angara Embankment, is a popular place for evening promenades.

And the churches, these historical landmarks of the city, will tell you a fascinating story of their own…

2-hour walking tour of downtown Irkutsk will give you a unique chance to partake of the city's beauty.
