The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

Irkutsk

And now, at last, to Irkutsk. We come again to the Imperial Geographic Society. A more modern sight now than St. Innocent is Alexander in bronze. The Angara flows nearby, its current swift and strong. Shall I see the mammoths or the birds at the museum? Just beyond is Alexandrovskoye, and, if it is to be believed, a prison? I think I would rather stay in the countryside.
