On settlement of the Irkutsk and not only …


I think it is time once again to report on the construction of "Irkutsk settlement."

Of course leaving the governor D.Mezentseva a negative impact on the pace of construction, it’s been his baby. The new governor S.Eroschenko not paying so much attention to "Irkutsk settlement," he has another "obsession."

But despite this, most of the settlements already built and in the past year has become more or less complete form, now it’s not decoration.

Distinctive architectural character of Irkutsk — this is a strange mixture of eras and styles. Massive wooden huts, many of which more than a half century, side by side here with Stalin’s Empire style, and the Baroque cathedrals and churches — with a modernist merchants’ mansions and constructivism NEP. Time has made the center of Irkutsk his treasure: the era succeeded each other, but from every city has its own special story remains, embodied in wood, stone and urban legends. It is only natural that today, the historical center of Irkutsk is included in the tentative list of World Heritage Sites.
