  • The monastery was founded in 1689 (!) year. He is older than St. Petersburg! Here lies the Princess Trubetskaya and her children and the famous Russian writer Valentin Rasputin. Here near Admiral kolchak was executed. Mirror of history, it was. The current monastery, very cosy, great place to visit is imperative.

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.
