The Baikal Lake


The open air museum of wooden architecture Taltsi is a unique collection of historical, architectural and ethnographic monuments of the 17-20th centuries. It is located in a picturesque bank place on the right bank of Angara river in Taltsi dell, 47 kms from Irkutsk on the way to lake Baikal. In the museum there are four historical and cultural sections that have been recently reconstructed. They are Russian, Buryat, Evenk, Tofalar. The Evenks are people of Pribaikalye that inhabit the north of Irkutsk region. The Tofalars inhabit the eastern Sayan mountains. Of the three Pribaikalye the Buryats are the biggest Siberian community. Here are some photos taken last week. It was -18 °C.
