Taltsy is an open-air museum. again a museum - wooden buildings of small towns and villages of the Irkutsk region, caught in the flooded zone during the construction of a cascade of hydroelectric power plants on the Angara in the second half of the XX century. Earlier, on the site of the museum, there was a large village of Taltsy, in which there was even an industry (a glass factory, later transferred to Tulun), but during the construction of the Irkutsk hydroelectric power station and the formation of a reservoir, the main part of the village was flooded. A museum was established on a hill. Currently, there are over 40 architectural monuments and more than 8000 exhibits on the territory of the museum, telling about life in Siberian villages of the 17th-19th centuries. Also, the southern wall of the wooden Ilimsk prison was reconstructed, which includes the Bolshoi Spasskaya Passage Tower (built in 1667) and the Kazan Gateway Church (built in 1697), transported from the flooded Ilimsk. Of greatest interest are the Ilimskaya Kazan Church (XVII); Spasskaya Passing Tower of Ilimsky prison (XVIII); a cascade of 3 water mills (late XIX, village Vladimirovka, Bratsk district); mangazeya - societies. grain storage barn (late XIX); parish school (1880s, Keul village, Ust-Ilimsky district); farmsteads of peasants: Moscow (late XIX), Nepomiluev (XVIII - early XIX), Seryshev (mid.

The Baikal Museum is the only lake museum in Russia, and one of the three existing in the world, is located on the southern coast of Lake Baikal in the village of Listvyanka. The Baikal Museum of the Irkutsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS was created in 1993 on the basis of the previously existing Baikal exposition of the Limnological Institute of the SB RAS. The exposition, telling about the origin, life and research of Lake Baikal, began to be created back in 1925, simultaneously with the organization of the Baikal expedition of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Since 1928, it has been replenished and improved at the Baikal limnological station in Listvyanka. Today the Baikal Museum is included in the list of all-Russian tourist routes and deservedly enjoys great popularity. The number of visitors to the museum is growing every year, and now it is over 100 thousand people a year. This is the only museum whose exposition introduces the history of the study of Lake Baikal, its fauna and flora. Today, the museum funds contain about 17 thousand exhibits from the Baikal collections.
In 2003, 11 huge aquariums appeared in the museum, which contain the entire Baikal aquatic fauna - from Gammarus crustaceans to the Baikal seal. There are no such aquariums anywhere in the world: water is supplied to them using pumps from a natural reservoir from a depth of 400 meters. During the day, the pump pumps 500 cubic meters of water, the temperature of which is about 4 degrees C. In the aquarium, the water heats up to 7-8 C, and before returning to Baikal it passes through the heat pump of the heating system of the museum building and returns excess heat. The museum's aquariums are part of Baikal itself, they contain 20 species of fish: bream, pike, perch, roach, burbot, catfish, scaled carp, mirror carp, crucian carp, Baikal omul, white grayling, black grayling, lenok, Baikal sturgeon, 9 species of goby fish and 5 species of crustaceans, 3 species of sponges and 2 species of molluscs. In two separate combined aquariums, the Baikal seals frolic. The aquariums are built in such a way that the underwater inhabitants of Lake Baikal can be viewed in the most careful way. "Diving to the bottom of Baikal or Bathyscaphe" - this unique exposition gives you the opportunity to become a participant in an underwater journey around Lake Baikal. This is a real adventure that has no analogues in Russia. Diving to a depth of 1,637 meters takes only 15 minutes. Visitors enter the imitation of a submarine, sit down and begin a virtual dive to the bottom of the lake, from the water's edge, shallow waters, to the stall, up to the maximum depth of Lake Baikal. A complete illusion of immersion is created. The voice of the announcer behind the scenes announces the depths that are gaining, before the eyes in the windows float gammarus, omul, golomyanka and other inhabitants of Lake Baikal. In fact, computer monitors are hidden behind the windows, on which passengers are shown a 15-minute film edited from real underwater footage of Lake Baikal in the Listvyanka area, on Olkhon, the Small Sea.

The Circum-Baikal Railway (Circum-Baikal Railway) is a unique place not only on Lake Baikal, but, perhaps, in the whole world. In terms of the number of various types of work per 1 km of track, and the difficulty of their implementation, the Circum-Baikal Railway surpassed all constructed railways in the world and is rightfully considered the most beautiful among the world's railways. This is the place where, on a narrow strip of the Baikal coast, the stone masonry of the portals of the tunnels and retaining walls with picturesque non-recurring rocks have surprisingly merged together. The slopes facing Lake Baikal are very steep in many places, cut by narrow but deep valleys, sometimes they rise almost vertically above the lake. The Circum-Baikal Railway is a unique monument of engineering architecture. A bit of history: May 17, 1891 Tsar Alexander III issued a decree on the beginning of the construction of the Trans-Siberian Railway, "ordering now to begin the construction of a continuous railway across the whole of Siberia, which has to connect the abundant gifts of the Siberian regions with the network of internal rail communications." It was built mainly by convicts exiled to Siberia. In total, about 15,000 people were involved, working 14-16 hours a day. Accidents often occurred, with up to 100 deaths per year. Tunneling was carried out mainly by hand, using explosives. The daily speed of advancement was 40-50 cm. Specialists in stone masonry from Italy and Albania worked on free hiring, using elements of cyclopean masonry in construction, in which the stone is placed without a binding solution, by selection according to the shape. For each kilometer of track, on average, one car of explosives was consumed and earthworks were carried out in a volume equal to the capacity of about 400 cars, which is comparable to the volume of work on the construction of the Suez Canal. During the construction period of this section of the Trans-Siberian railway (from Kultuk to the port of Baikal), the builders erected 41 tunnels. Of these, 40 have survived. The total length of the tunnels is about nine and a half kilometers. 15 stone galleries and 3 reinforced concrete galleries were built. About 470 large and small bridges and 6 viaducts were thrown across the rivers, streams, hollows, hollows, bays of Lake Baikal. To protect the path, about 270 different fortifications were built: retaining walls, paving, and others. 18 stone pipes and trays were built. According to some estimates, there is one engineering and technical structure for every 100 meters of track on the Circum-Baikal Railway.
On this day, you will get acquainted with the "Siberian Riviera" - with the Peschanaya Bay. Trekking to the viewpoint where you will take your best shots. Return to the ship. Passage to the Small Sea. Inspection of rock paintings on the Sagan-Zaba rock. Night on the ship.
Meals included: breakfast, lunch, dinner
Sandy Bay is the most famous and popular place of Lake Baikal. This bay is located on the western coast, approximately at the point where the Angara River begins. The village of Bolshoye Goloustnoye can serve as a reference point for the search. The local population calls Sandy Bay just the local Riviera. Having been there, you understand why they call it that, and you agree with this, because Sandy Bay is a beach with golden fine sand, a pleasant shore and a friendly sun. This secluded corner is considered a nature reserve and is part of the national park. In the area of Peschanaya Bay, in comparison with other areas of the Baikal region, a rather comfortable climate. Previously, Sandy Bay was called Kolokolnaya, because it is located between the Bolshoy Kolokolny and Maly Kolokolny capes. Big Bell Cape can be seen from a long distance not only because it is really big, but also because a lighthouse was built on this cape, the signals of which were a guiding thread for ships. Currently, the lighthouse is no longer operational, and its surroundings are chosen by tourists. Climbing to its top, you understand the reason: the view that opens from the lighthouse is amazing. But not everyone can go to the lighthouse, because the road there is long and difficult. Without climbing skills and good physical fitness, it makes no sense to go. There is another bay near the bay, which is called Akademichesky and is very small in size. In addition, behind the Big Bell Cape you can find a bay called Babushka, where it is no less beautiful and secluded. But at the Maly Kolokolny Cape, an indefatigable tourist can discover a bay named Zavernyaikha. There is a beautiful view from this bay, including the island called Baklaniy Kamen. The main photographs of Sandy Bay, which you could see in various tourist brochures or postcards, were taken against the background of stilted trees. These are conifers, mainly pines or spruces, with bare roots. Such trees can be found in other places of Lake Baikal, but over the years the number of such trees decreases.
