Baikal Tourist Attractions

The nearest big city is Irkutsk, where foreign guests will find all kinds of services: hotels, hostels, walking routes around the city and much more. In addition to Irkutsk, we recommend visiting other cities around the Lake. In the Baikalsk city, guests can go skiing or visit the local attraction – the lake in shape of heart! It is a favorite meeting place for all lovers! Be sure to make a travel to Khuzhir on the Olkhon Island, and you will understand why the locals call it “the heart of Baikal”. In 20 km away from the Lake is the special touristic place, village Tal’tsy with its old houses built in the 18th and 19th centuries! This is a real open-air Museum!

Moreover, if you like something mysterious and inexplicable, we invite you to visit the village of Ust-Orda and get acquainted with the culture of Shamanism – the religion of local people, which intertwine the wisdom of hundreds of generations and the mysterious tradition of honoring the spirits of ancestors and nature. In conclusion we want to say that Baikal is a unique place and we can confidently say only one thing – if you want to see something that you have not seen before – welcome to Baikal!
