Ulan-Ude imageUlan-Ude

Ulan-Ude is the capital city of the Republic of Buryatia, Russia. The first occupants of the area where Ulan-Ude now stands were the Evenks and, later, the Buryat Mongols. Ulan-Ude was settled in 1666 by the Russian Cossacks as the fortress of Udinskoye. Due to its favourable geographical position, it grew rapidly and became a large trade centre which connected Russia with China and Mongolia.


Ulan-Ude is located on the mainline (Trans-Siberian line) of the Trans-Siberian Railway between Irkutsk and Chita at the junction of the Trans-Mongolian line (the Trans-Mongolian Railway) which begins at Ulan Ude and continues south through Mongolia to Beijing in China.
