PanRussia Panorama – Irkutsk, Baikal and Ekanterinburg
The border town (with Mongolia) of Naushki was not a place to remember, but I feel this photo shows the viewer why.
Irkutsk was a surprisingly pretty town which I liked, despite a guy on the train saying it was one of the most disappointing cities he’d ever visited. There were a couple of old houses which were worth visiting, the one above is the Volkansky House which was the bigger of the two.
Ekanterinburg or Yekanterinburg if you prefer had a central lake, or as the book called it ‘City Pond’. It was a much bigger city than Irkutsk, and had a building with an observation deck to get a good view of the countryside. It was an attractive Russian city. It had a wonderful cafe called ‘Stolle’ too that was interestingly decorated.
Thanks for stopping by today. Another post coming up in a day or two! Take care and May the Journey Never End!
