  • Aside from the main monastery of iconic places, but visit it stands. He not only beautiful and significant for the history of the city of Irkutsk in the monastery Cathedral.-ancient murals and icons. Place namolennoe and tragic in the square in front of the monastery is a monument to Admiral Kolchak. Around here he was executed without trial. Close to the river you can see the simple cross. He Stands on the very spot where dropped in the river the body of the executed Admiral.

  • Znamensky monastery inadvertantly turned out to be one of the iconic places of Irkutsk. Many events began and ended many destinies. Near this complex, kandal'nikov road, going from Poland and Central Russia on on misery, workers uprising here, here was dropped under ice Hangars Admiral kolchak. On the territory of the monastery lies the necropolis of historical figures (many with hidden meaning, which is a very practiced at the turn of the 19-20 centuries) Znamensky monastery is the Church, for a visit which you must observe the usual rules, the Abbot of the temple are very conservative. Get acquainted with the history of the monastery is best accompanied by a guide, first learn a lot of interesting things, secondly the monastery is not far from public transport routes.
