Today Irkutsk is one of the largest economical, industrial and cultural centers of Eastern Siberia. The citizens of the city believe that Irkutsk means for Siberia as much as Paris for France and London for England. The city really has much to offer: theaters, architectural and historical monuments amaze with their beauty. One of the most charming parts of Irkutsk is the city center with its green boulevards and the ensemble of the central square.
