Ulan Ude, first stop in Russia on our Trans-Siberian railway journey

Scroll down to content

Ulan Ude in Buryatia republic is Russia’s largest centre of Buddhism. It’s the first stop in Russia from Mongolia on the Trans-Siberian railway travelling east-west from Asia.

Drones buzz around Lenin’s 7-metre head in the town square, people can pose with Chekhov or play chess in the shopping mall, pigeons are ‘freed’ for wedding photos, and restored traditional homes sit alongside the river.

Residents in the old section collect water from pumps on street corners. A couple of interesting fellows wait at one of the pumps to offer tourists a photo opportunity with a colourful bucket, or them, for a few rouble.

Here’s a collection of photos from between the square and the river. I have an earlier blog post of photos from a visit to the Russian-Orthodox Cathedral in the area.
