This is a popular program that covers a part of Trans-Siberian track from Moscow to Ulan-Bator with two en-route stopovers at the west and east coasts of Lake Baikal. Like most of our cultural trips with sightseeing, history and ethnographic program it enables you to explore our culturally diverse region. You will admire the views of the most traditional golden onion-bulb-shaped domes of Russian Orthodox churches in Moscow and Irkutsk. Then the tour proceeds to Buryatia which is being the center of Buddhist religion in Russia and at the same time a home for the Old Believers’ Christians who were exiled to the remote wilds of TransBaikalia back in XVII-th century. Finally reaching Mongolia you will find old Buddhist monasteries, the monolithic architecture of the Soviet era and the immense number of traditional nomad gers all mixed up in one place.
