On both of my Transsiberian Train tours we had a stopover in Irkutsk.
The nice thing was, that I experienced that wonderful town in March, when it was still very cold and in September! And I really enjoyed it both times! The vicinity of Lake Baikal is wonderful, but the town itself is quite nice as well!

    Hi Christine, it's great that you had two Transsiberian Train tours. This looks like an interesting place to stop over right in the middle of the trip.

    Thank you for you wonderful insights of Irkutsk and vicinity. One of my pipe dreams is to ride the RR like you did.

    Why don't you name it "Savior Cathedral".... That's another great example of the Russian architecture....

    Irkutsk doesn't look real... it looks like a legendary place...
