  • Be in Irkutsk and not to visit the Hangar-unacceptable! (not to mention the Baikal-there must go, amazing energy!) Wayward River, strong, fascinating. And on the waterfront is a monument to the founder of Irkutsk. Next, think about how everything here (in Irkutsk) began. Monument to interesting and informative. Recommend!

  • Lower Quay after rekomnstrukcii has become a favorite place for Japanese tourists. And really, literally half an hour you can see more of 10 attractions. This monument is near a pedestrian crossing the street to Sukhbaatar Square Kirov.
