We tried to use our time wisely, being stuck in Irkutsk. In the morning we did a tour of all the nearby churches; took photos. We also visited the Volkonsky House-Museum, the restored manor where he spent his exile from St. Petersburg.
In the afternoon we signed up for a whole day tour to the northern shore of Lake Baikal, taking place tomorrow, to give this #1 local attraction another chance. 🙂
