Located 180 kilometers away from Ulan-Ude. The town was founded more than 120 years ago and has been a historic town of Russia for almost 30 years. The town is named after a well-known revolutionary Bolshevik Ivan Babushkin, and during the 19th century it was one of the trade centers along the Tea Road. A Museum of Local History operates here, and a lot of interesting things can be found inside, for example, a big collection of antique samovars.
