gives way to the urban sweep of Ulaanbaatar, and the contrast

Gandan Khiid, a beautiful Buddhist monastery built in the late
nineteenth century, and the Winter Palace of Mongolia's last king,
Jebtzun Damba Hutagt VIII, which is now a museum featuring a large
collection of stuffed animals.

theatres, along with a cosmopolitan selection of shops and
restaurants all of which combine to make the city a must-see
