  • A great place to get acquainted with the city of Bratsk. The biggest attraction. It is we, the locals no longer surprised, but for visitors is the eccentricity. One of the largest HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT in Russia. And you can not only look the part, but also go by car or train. At the last transport views the most interesting, because on the one hand there is the river Angara, and on the other by the Bratsk reservoir. You can also look at the bottom of the dam. For extreme-have the opportunity to climb the steep banks of the river
