This wonderful place offers the opportunity to visit 3 famous Irkutsk churches: the Church of the Savior (Spasskaya), the Epiphany (Bogoyavlensky) Cathedral and the Roman Catholic Church, take a walk from the monument to the founders of Irkutsk to the Moscow Gate, where ferry tours start. Going down to the banks of the Angara River, you can admire its view and watch the river boats. Not far from the embankment there is also the Eternal Flame and the War Memorial erected in honor of the Irkutsk people who gave their lives in the Great Patriotic War.
