agarin Avenue takes its name after the famous Soviet cosmonaut, the first man in space – Yuri Gagarin. It stretched along the bank of the Angara River. On the Avenue, you can take a leisurely walk from the bridge leading from the train station to Karl Marx Street and the island “Youth”. There are several hotels and hostels on the avenue, as well as a large store of tourist equipment. Along with that, this place is interesting for tourists because of dock “Gagarin Avenue”. From here, passengers take ferries both for ferry trips around the Angara River, and going on a ferry route to Lake Baikal. While waiting for the ferry, you can sit in the shade of trees or nearby cafes. When the time comes to board, the ferry will emit a loud beep.
There are not many monuments or attractions on Gagarin Avenue. It’s just a nice place to walk on a warm summer evening. You can learn more about ferry routes on Lake Baikal here.
