“Wooden” streets


Many central streets of Irkutsk have preserved old wooden buildings of the 18th-20th centuries. Gryaznov, Lapin, Timiryazev and Bogdan Khmelnitsky Streets, Podgornaya and Dekabrskikh Sobytiy Streets are just a few of the long list of streets with wooden architecture. The houses of these streets are striking with their layouts and decorative carvings. Walking over these places, you will feel the real atmosphere of the Irkutsk merchant houses of the 19thcentury.
