  • This church is notable for the unusual holy fresco on the outside wall of it. I noticed it while I was driving past it on local route buses. It is hard to miss it.  more »
  • We did not go inside the church, but from the outside it is very pretty. It was apparently built in two phases separated by some time, so you can actually see two different types of architecture.  more »
  • Unusual icon (or how to call, not a picture of the same) from the outside wall directly < very impressive looks, inspires AWE some I even said. Inside was not.

Where to stay in Irkutsk

A famous stop on the Trans-Siberian railway, historically rich Irkutsk serves as a perfect base for trips to Lake Baikal. With its steadily increasing popularity among tourists, the city offers a good selection of places to stay. The center of the city has the highest concentration of luxury and boutique hotels, but you can also find quite a few in other neighborhoods. Numerous bed and breakfasts and plenty of hostels offer a good alternative to hotels. Likewise, renting a fully furnished apartment is another popular option. Note that the number of available apartments significantly increases during the summer season, when most tourists visit the city.
