In the land of Buryats.
Ulan Ude is the capital of the Republic of Buryatia. Among tourists is known for being a sort of gate to the lake Baikal but mostly because of a giant Lenin’s head, world biggest in its kind. However, the town has much more to offer, from the buuzy, the local dumplings to the beautiful wooden houses. On top of it there is that feeling of Mongolia that is quite close.
