Description

One day Irkutsk city tour and excursion to Lake Baikal includes the most interesting sites and provides a good piece of information about local history, culture, traditions and nature. Apart from Irkutsk city tour you will visit famous Listvyanka village - a popular place for Baikal explorers, will be able to get the best view of Baikal Lake from the observation point, as well as explore the collection of the local Museums.

Meet your guide at the hotel in Irkutsk to start your journey. You will see many small one- and two-storeyed wooden houses or cabins that are decorated with “wooden laces” (handmade carvings) as well as modern constructions of the 20th century. During this city tour of Irkutsk, our guide will tell you about the city’s evolution and will show the most interesting sights and peculiar features of one of the most beautiful cities in Russia.

After lunch (own expense) you will go by car to Listvyanka settlement. After a 1 hour drive, you come to a viewpoint facing the Shaman Rock, at the source of the Angara River. Observe the best view of Lake Baikal here from the top of the mountain and ride a cableway for the best views. Don't forget to take a ribbon to tie at the top.

The small but tourist-wise village of Listvyanka is located on the western shore of Lake Baikal, 70 km from Irkutsk. This old-style Siberian village is famous for its trade history. From the 18th century, its ferry took merchants across the lake to Mongolia and China and the Far East. The Museum of Lake Baikal (Limnological Museum) provides information about the origin and wildlife of the lake. A video film gives you the opportunity to see the deepest point of the lake’s bottom (1,637 metre) from the submarine boat.

In the village, a variety of hot- or cold-smoked and salted omul and grayling fish is on sale. Several private cafes and restaurants offer traditional Siberian or European meals for you. You can taste pelmeny (stuffed dumplings), pirozhki (with cabbage, or meat, or berries), and caviar sandwiches to feel the spirit of Siberia.

On your way from Irkutsk to Listvyanka a car can take you to the Museum of Wooden Architecture. The open-air museum has a large collection of original wooden houses equipped with the old-style furniture and domestic utensils. They were brought from several local villages.

At the end of the tour you will get back to your hotel in Irkutsk.
