One day in Ulan Ude, Russia! Capital of the Buryatia Republic and the buddhist capital of Russia. A whirlwind of some of the best sites the city has to offer.
Irkutsk, the capital of eastern Siberia is unsurprisingly, cold. Unbelievably cold! It is also one of the most popular stops in the Trans-Siberian Express, a pleasant historic city where you can experience the best of Russian food and hospitality!
