Irkutsk – Through My Lens

Hi all. I thought today I’d show you some photos from a different region to ones I’ve been concentrating on recently, and take you Siberia. Irkutsk was the first town I stopped in Russia in 2017 as I took the Trans-Mongolian train from Beijing to Moscow. Irkutsk is a rather cute city in its way I guess, I went probably four to six weeks before the Summer season started, it was still very cold (at least for me!) not hitting double figures. But I did enjoy this charming spot immensely. Would love to return when the weather is warmer!

Another Old Russian Wooden House in Irkutsk – there were so many

I believe these signs were memorials to children who had passed away
