Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Listvyanka tour and the Taltsy Museum

    Listvyanka is a kind of tourism Mecca among all visitors to Irkutsk, the starting point of many sightseeing routes along Lake Baikal. This is the closest place to the city where you can see the Pearl of Siberia.

    The village is located about 70 km from Irkutsk. After about an hour of travel, you can already see Lake Baikal! But first, on the way to Listvyanka, you will stop at the Taltsy open-air museum. Taltsy is an architectural and ethnographic museum, where examples of wooden architecture of the past centuries are collected. 

    It is located on the picturesque shore of the Angara River surrounded by the Siberian forest, which gives it an authentic look and an authentic historical atmosphere. The guide will conduct an exciting tour, after which you will go further to Listvyanka.

    On the way you will see the legendary Shaman Stone, with which a beautiful legend is associated; visit the Baikal Museum, which not only conducts expositional and educational activities, but also continues to engage in serious scientific research, and therefore you will not find out such information about Lake Baikal "first-hand" anywhere.

    This day will end in Irkutsk — tomorrow you will get to know the city better!

    Included in the price: group transfer, excursion to Taltsy, guide service, accommodation.
