"A week in Irk" Irkutsk by salisbury3933
Irkutsk Travel Guide: 186 reviews and 628 photos
We spent a very enjoyable week in Irkutsk in Nov 2004. The highlight was undoubtedly the day trip we took down to Lake Baikal, but there's plenty to do in Irkutsk itself. It's a very attractive city, with wooden architechture, old churches and cathedrals and other sites of historical importance.
It's also the gateway to Baikal, so if you are making a Trans-Siberian journey, this is a great place to stop.
I also have some pages on Taltsy and the village of Listvyanka on the shores of Baikal.
There's a restaurant on Karl Marx that specialises in Pozy, a Buryat dish, which could be described as some kind of lamb... more travel advice
I enjoyed the older wooden architecture that can be seen around the city. more travel advice
