Irkutsk Oblast

Sightseeing Museums Historic Sites
Consisting mostly of rugged hills and broad river valleys, Irkutsk Oblast encompasses areas north and west of Lake Baikal, a World Heritage Site topping the itineraries of most visitors to this part of the world. Covered in dense forests and rich in gold, oil, and natural gas, the area remains one of Russia's wildest and remotest parts. The regional capital Irkutsk serves as the gateway to Lake Baikal and provides a convenient stopover for trans-Siberian railway travelers. A lively center of culture and tourism, the city boasts historic churches, modern museums, and trendy eateries. Popular activities include camping on one of Lake Baikal's islands and rafting on the Irkut River.
