Every city has its own special street. Such street where the spirit of the past combines with the modern times, and each building tells its own story. In case of Ulan-Ude it’s Lenin street, or rather its pedestrian part which people call the local Arbat. The richest residents of Verkhneudinsk lived on this street – the families of merchants N.L. Kapelman, I.F. Goldobin, A.M. Kurbatov etc. Their houses are in perfect shape and will tell their stories to curious travellers. While going from the Soviet Square to Odigitrievsky Cathedral you will also see the triumphal arc «Czar’s Gates», some original monuments, you can also visit the Museum of History of Buryatia… From Spring till Autumn Arbat isn’t just a frozen still place, it’s a vibrant area with street musicians, happy children laughter and bird songs. And of course it is also the place where you can buy souvenirs and things made by local artists. You can always find something useful and beautiful here.
