Russia is known as the Russian Federation and the capital is Moscow. Located in the northern part of Eurasia, Russia has a land area of 17.1 million square kilometers. It is the largest country in the world. The coastline stretches from the Arctic Ocean to the North Pacific Ocean. It also includes the inland sea Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, covering a wide geographical environment. With the world’s largest forest reserve and a lake containing about one-quarter of the world’s freshwater, the natural resources are extremely rich, and the landscapes are diverse, with a large number of historical and cultural monuments and cultural and cultural landscapes.
The culture and art of Russia is also extremely brilliant. The literature represented by Pushkin and Tolstoy, as well as Tchaikovsky’s ballet, Tarkovsky’s poetic film, and the paintings of the roving school are world famous. This land once gave birth to the first socialist country in human history, and it has brought great dreams to mankind.
Russia has extremely rich tourism resources. Moscow’s Red Square, the Kremlin and other world-famous, winter to see the Baikal mysterious and beautiful blue ice or summer trains through the dense and deep Siberian forest are good choices. St. Petersburg is an elegant and romantic city. The quiet and wide Neva River and the criss-crossing ancient canal form the city’s water network system. The exquisite bridges abound and have the reputation of “Venice in the North”. Or go and see the scenery of the Black Sea. Go to the Marinsky Theatre to see a ballet performance, or go to the Tretyakov Gallery to see the masterpieces.
Speaking of Russia, you have to mention Lake Baikal. Lake Baikal is a special crescent. It is the oldest and deepest lake in the world. It has a history of 25 million years and stores 20% of the world’s total freshwater resources, enough for 5 billion people. Drink for half a century. Transparency is as high as 40.5 meters and is called “Siberian Blue Eyes”. In the winter of 4-5 months, the lake will freeze to a thickness of more than 1 meter. However, the temperature in the depths of the lake can be kept constant at around 3.5 °C.
Rich vegetation, plankton and amphipods make Lake Baikal “self-purifying”, and you can drink it directly by filtering out plankton in the water. And so far, modern technology has been unable to detect the depth of this ancient lake, adding more mystery to it.
The city of Irkutsk is the closest city to Lake Baikal, at the southern end of Lake Baikal, at the intersection of the Angara River and the Irkutsk River. There is no bustling Moscow here, but there is more authentic Russian style. Without excessive commercial development, the city and natural scenery have maintained their original appearance for a hundred years. There is almost no time difference with China, it is only at 9 o’clock in the morning of winter, and you can sleep naturally every day.There is also a unique engineering building of world significance – the Circum-Baikal Railway. Founded in the 20th century and designed by Italian and Russian engineers, the complexity and value of construction work is unique in the history of Russian railway construction. A total of 39 tunnels and 47 corridors were established in this section of the Baikal railway section, which is not very long. It is recommended to spend a day in the summer on a small train, you can enjoy the scenery along the coast, and you can take a photo at a fixed location. In winter, due to climate problems, it may be out of service. It is recommended to check in advance.
Centered on Kirov Square, there are many attractions in the surrounding area. After parking nearby, it takes only 2-3 hours to walk slowly and take a large circle, which is basically enough. On the north side of the city center Kirov Square is the Monument to the Unknown Soldier of World War II, which records every Irkutsk soldier killed in the Patriotic War. The flame of victory will never go out.
The Talitz Museum is located on the road beside Lake Baikal and covers an area of 67 hectares in the nature reserve. With more than 40 buildings and 8,000 exhibits, it has a high historical and cultural value. Shown here is a true portrayal of the living and living of Russians and Buryats. Due to the construction of reservoirs during the Soviet period in the 20th century, coastal residents were forced to relocate, so the locals will have more than 40 local wooden houses 300-100 years ago. Each piece of wood in the building is numbered, and the original appearance of the house is restored in order of reconstruction. This led to the construction of the only wooden house museum in the world.The size of the building can be distinguished from the size of the window. The older the house, the smaller the window for warmth. With the improvement of the times and technology, the windows have become larger and larger, and more and more, the carving on the window baffles has become more and more beautiful.
