Check-out of our hotel at Lake Baikal shores and transfer to Irkutsk. Today you have a free day to explore Irkutsk. The very centre of Irkutsk is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The wooden buildings, some constructed as far back as the eighteenth century, have recently been restored to their stunning brilliance. Their colourful, mosaic-like facades make them look a little like gingerbread houses.
