Irkutsk, Siberia and Lake Baikal are destinations both romantic and far from the usual everyday city life. Covered in ice and snow for the biggest part of the year, Irkutsk is a beautiful place by Lake Baikal.
Did you know that the centre of Irkutsk is a UNESCO World Heritage site? Did you know that Lake Baikal is the largest freshwater lake in the world? The best way to visit this natural treasure is to go to the village of Listvyanka.
View the mouth of the Angara river, hike to Chersky rock for an amazing panorama on Lake Baikal which will leave you speechless. With your local charismatic guide you will visit the wooden orthodox church of Krestovka, the Landfill Museum with a collection of statues made by local artists out of old car parts, the fish market and of course a lot of views on the magnificent Lake Baikal.
