Bogoyavlenskiy (Epiphany) Cathedral

This cathedral should be considered the “precursor of Siberian Baroque”. For the first time, oversprayed Dutch tiles were used to decorate the facades of the building – about 290 of them depicting flowers and personages of fairy-tales. There are only three architectural monuments of this type exist in Siberia.

Spasskaya Church

Spasskaya Church is the oldest brick-and-stone edifice in Siberia. It was built in 1706 to replace the outworn wooden church. This is the only building of the original Irkutsk fort. Spasskaya church was related to numerous aspects of urban life of Irkutsk.
In the beginning of the XIX century, the church’s facades were decorated with frescoes not only on the inside and on the outside. This fact made Spasskaya church one of the rarest monuments of religious edifice.

Znamenskiy Convent

Znamenskiy Convent of Irkutsk was founded in 1693 at the inflow of the Ushakovka into the Angara. The convent keeps the Gospel granted to the Convent by the Emperor himself. A brick-and-stone church was built in 1757 in the Convent.
Since 1990, the cathedral of the convent is the home of the newly found relics of the patron of the city, the first bishop of Irkutsk St.Innokentiy.

Polish Roman Catholic Church

The brick-and-stone church was built in the place of the burned down wooden church with the contributions collected by the exile Poles. This church is the only Gothic style edifice in our city.

Irkutsk Drama Theater

This theatre was built to design of architect V.A.Shreter in 1897 in classicism style with the donation of the city’s merchants and civil servants, at the initiative of Governor General A.Goremykin. After reconstruction , the theatre was eguipped with state-of-the-art theatrical equipment, became one of the best theatres in Russia. Monument to Alexander III
This monument was erected in 1908 in honor of completed construction of the Siberian Railway. The square around the monument became one of the city’s favored public recreational areas. The Emperor’s bronze sculpture was torn down from its pedestal in 1920. East-Siberian Railways undertook to restore the monument for 100th anniversary of Trans-Siberian Railway. Emperor took place on the pedestal again in 2003.

Baikal Station

White house was built by sons of Irkutsk merchant M.V.Sibiryakov in 1804. This building became known as the Sibiryakovs’ Palace and quickly became the most opulent merchant’s house of the time. In 1837, this building was bought out as a residence for Governor General of East Siberia.
