Landmark
Pop into the boutique shops, cafes, bars, and souvenir shops, all housed in traditional Irkutsk wooden houses, lining 130 Kvartal. Some of the wooden buildings have been transported from other locations throughout the county, and others were constructed to blend in with the original structures in the area. Guarding the entrance to the area is a monster bronze babr, the mythical beast featured on the Irkutsk municipal coat of arms. Be sure to take advantage of the outdoor seating to capture a view of the nearby river. Put 130 Kvartal on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Irkutsk travel itinerary planner.

  • Irkutsk is a wonderful, charming old town. New location for walks, dinner, shopping for souvenirs is now in our city. Feel the atmosphere of the old town and spend time with friends or family can be at 130. Cozy restaurants with excellent food, souvenir shops and marvellous views of the Angara will pleasantly surprise the guests of the city.

  • Nothing to do with the history of this place has not. Don't know what planned authors, but the result was a good place for walking, shopping and eating. I would call not 130 quarter and gastrokvartal. Many restaurants, cafés, national cuisines. A huge shopping mall. Visual impression spoils raznokalibernaja advertising and signage.
