city centers, railway stations, museums etc. This trip will give you a proper
chance to concentrate on yourself and nature in the middle of solemn Siberian
winter forest, see the lifestyle of a small Russian village in the middle of
nowhere. The settlement of about 30 houses is situated at the edge of immense
forest 1.5 hour by local train from Irkutsk. Several nice ski pistes start here
