What awaits you
From prison to revolution We will start from the place where the Irkutsk prison was founded - the same place can be called the ancient crossroads of the migration routes of mankind. You will see the main cathedral of Irkutsk and learn about 12 saints who blessed this land with their steps. Exploring the merchant quarters, you will get to know the fate of their owners. You will also visit the place where the revolutionary battles took place, and you will find out in which house Mongolia was created as a state
People in the history of the city On the territory of the Znamensky monastery - the oldest in the Angara region - I will remind you of the Decembrists, many of whom are buried on this territory, and I will tell you about the "Russian Columbus". Here you will also see the relics of St. Innocent Kulchitsky and can look at the monument to Admiral Kolchak
The city of stone and wood We will look into the poorest suburb of the city - Rabocheye, and in the center of the city we will admire wooden architecture, because Irkutsk is called the capital! We will drive along the “most luxurious street in Siberia” to the Angara embankment. Here you will find a monument to Emperor Alexander III, see the Irkutsk White House and the Moorish Castle - an ancient center of science in Siberia. We will loop the route or finish the walk in the famous "130 block".
Women need to bring any head covers with them, since we will be visiting at least three Orthodox churches.
