The tour takes you to the historical center of Ulan Ude. You will learn about the history of foundation of the city as Cossack fortification. You will also become acquainted with the city’s main highlights such as Lenin square with a huge bust of Lenin (the largest in the world), the Opera and Ballet theater, Gostiniy ryad – an old department store, the market, the Odigitriy Cathedral, Troitskaya church and the banks of the river Uda and Selenga which flow from Mongolia. This is a small and charming city with an Asian exotic feel.

After a rest we will return back to the city.
