Downtown Fishing in Irkutsk

Would you like to go fishing in the evening? Right in the center of the city!

Yes, here is the fish we cought in Angara river in the very center of Irkutsk. A medium pike. It was a very nice evening, lots of fishermen on the shore, people having barbecue and relaxing.

Great Sunny Day

Today it was the first Irkutsk free tour day for two cool German travelers. Actually they have discovered the city center by themselves few days before, so it was necessary to come up with something else. No problem!

We went to have fun in another part of the city, where travelers usually don’t go. Taking an electric trolley bus from downtown we reached a very nice area with access to a great walk on the ice-frozen Angara river and see icebreaker ship that is more than 100 years old.

Also it was a just super great sunny day! Russian-style winter fun activities made everybody super happy.
