You will visit the historic center of the city with 18th-19th-century merchant houses, churches, and the central square with the world’s largest statue of Lenin’s head. Your guide will talk about the history of the city and its contemporary lifestyle.
Ulan-Ude is unique in combining European and Soviet cultures with Buryat and Buddhist traditions. You can feel it everywhere. The architecture of the city looks like no other city in Russia. You cannot understand whether you are still in Europe or already in Asia – so long Russians and Buryats have been living together.
