Escorted Rail Tours to Ulan Ude

Home to the world's largest sculpted head

Ulan Ude is the capital of the Buryat Republic, and is renowned for housing the world's largest sculpted head - Lenin's - which dominates the town square. Closed to foreign visitors until 1991, today the ethnic and cultural diversity of this area offers a unique insight into its heritage. The different faces and dress styles of these welcoming people, along with the varying architectural influences, are apparent when touring the area. This area of Siberia is a strong area for the Russian Orthodox Church, and more particularly for the Old Believers, a branch of the church founded from theological debates of the 17th century. Ulan Ude boasts an Old Believers' Village, which is fascinating to discover today.
