Welcome to Irkutsk!

Irkutsk is an unique old city, the ancient crossroads of trade routes, the capital of Eastern Siberia. Proximity of sacred lake Baikal, the Angara and the Irkut rivers determines the soul of the city and its people: calm, kind, patient and generous.

The city celebrated its 350th birthday in 2011, is famous for the wooden architecture objects and Siberian Baroque churches.
