Actually, NOT at the Drama Theatre, but at the Musical Theatre, which is not listed on Trip Advisor! I saw Verdi's Aida, a touring production from Ulan Ude, which was not only superbly sung, and quite well played, it was imaginatively and luxuriously designed in traditional style. The theatre is clearly Soviet in style, as are the prices. I paid the equivalent of £3 for an excellent seat. GO!!

I visited this Cathedral in Feb 2017. It was very cold and there were many ice carving/sculptures outside the Cathedral.One of the beautiful Cathedral that i have seen in Russia. Inside the Cathedral was amazing. Icons, mural paintings were really fantastic. Must see place in Irkutsk. Small ice carving chapel was really beautiful.

Architectural-ethnographic Museum "Taltsy" – a unique collection of monuments of history, architecture and Ethnography of XVII–XX centuries.The Museum complex under the open sky attracts visitors with opportunity for direct experience of material and spiritual culture of the peoples of the Baikal region
Though the snow was deep and walking through the snow was a bit challenging, the museum was very interesting. We learned a lot about this village, and got some beautiful photos of these wooden buildings. They also had a good number of activities for families...MoreБлагодарим за потрясающий отзыв !

A beautiful setting, a peaceful spot and a chance to reunite with a religious we met on the TransSiberian railroad headed to Irkutsk. The iconography in the Church is consistent with many of the churches in the City. The grounds of the monastery are pleasant to walk through,

It is small but beautiful Cathedral, painted new and colorful. The Angara river besides gave a special reflection to the walls. There was not much people inside the Cathedral but very spiritual atmosphere. I met a girl there resembling the Vermeer’s paining ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’.

Nicely preserved house belonging to the Decembrists' after they were exiled to Siberia from Moscow for attempting to rise up and assassinate / remove the Russian Tsar. They were predominantly youngish but senior Russian military officers who after seeing liberal French policies in Paris (which they had captured after defeating Napoleon) were inspired to remove the Tsar and likewise liberalise Russia. Naturally they failed and were thus exiled to Irkutsk. House itself was beautiful and full of gorgeous fittings. Apparently the obvious wealth of the inhabitants was provided by the wife's of those exiled. This still confuses me as it seams that given the seriousness of their crimes, rebelling and attempting to assassinate the Tsar, they got off significantly lightly !!! Nevertheless well worth a visit to see the magnificent architecture and get a better understanding of the Decembrist revolt and what happened to those involved. Need a good English speaking guide to get the best out of the visit. As part of our tour had a private Russian classical concert, not my cup of tea but greatly enjoyed by others in our group.

I enjoyed the interactions between the seals and the trainer and they are well trained, highly intelligent animals. I was a bit surprised as to the size of the tank, slightly small for four seals. There is no English, not an issue but don't expect it. Would like to know why you cannot take photos, this was a big downside. It's a little pricey for 35-40 minutes but you'll enjoy it, i certainly did.

Irkutsk is a really beautiful city full of character. Perhaps the nicest part of it is the riverside walk and one of the finest monuments there is the massive monument to the founder of the city. It depicts a Cossak soldier with his greatcoat fluttering in an imaginary breeze, a weapon in his right hand as he gazes into the distance. It is one a huge plinth and towers above the river. I really liked it, its very impressive and a great place for photos both of the statue itself and the river and cityscape behind it.
