  • By boat down the Angara to Listvyanka

    Irkutsk Things to Do

    Most tourists will probably want to visit Lake Baikal, the world's oldest, deepest lake and an astonishing reserve of freshwater on planet earth. I went by boat from Raketa port (close to the Angara steamship at the south of Irkutsk) at 9am, returning at 6.30pm. The nearest stop, one hour away, is the small town of Listvyanka (also reachable by bus...

    Irkutsk Transportation

    Other forms of transport include the trolleybus and taxis (which are not as common here as in some cities) so the local buses provided all of my journeys where I didn't walk. From the train station, the number 116 is a great service line, going all the way down Lenin Street to the Angara port and steamship at the southern point of the city. When...

    Listvyanka Warnings and Dangers

    On one of our evenings in town, a group of young men came up to our table after midnight. They were insisted on us buying them a pizza! They were being quite direct about having it and were pleading that they were starving and had no money to get themselves one. Eventhought that story doesn't have a bad ending to it, you do realise that misery and...

    On weekdays, nightlife is not very heavy in Listvyanka. Nevertheless, a bottle of vodka, a few friends, and a stupid card drinking game can entertain any evening.

Bol'shoye Goloustnoye

  • By road

    Bol'shoye Goloustnoye Transportation

    The drive from Irkutsk takes quite a while and once you leave the outskirts of the city the surface of the road will change to unpaved. But still for an unpaved road the condition of it is rather good. You get to drive through some beautiful landscape partly of a national park. In autumn if the sun is shining the yellow leaves are just gorgeous.

  • Take a walk

    Bol'shoye Goloustnoye Things to Do

    The other main attraction here beside Lake Baikal is to see and experience a Buryat village which is to date rather unspoilt by mass tourism which simply doesn't exist. Of course it gets more and more popular with locals from Irkutsk which is about 80 km away. Walk along the streets and various paths and up the hill (don't let yourself frighten off...

  • Village port

    Bol'shoye Goloustnoye Things to Do

    On lake Baikal there is a small port. It's mainly used for fishing boats and vessels of a small size. Since there is also a jetty into the lake it could be possible that there is a (charter) boat from Listvyanka but don't count on it.
