«The Green Line» is a pedestrian route. The tourist information office and the city administration worked together on this project.
The route allows you to see 30 points of interest in 2–3 hours of a quiet walk.
You’ll see churches, historical monuments, the houses of famous merchants and patrons of arts, museums, theaters, plazas and squares.
The route is 5 kilometers long, beginning at the Alexander the Third monument on the Gagarin Boulevard and ending at the Krestovozdvijenskaya church on Sedov Street. This order is not mandatory, though. The route is circuited, and you can choose any of its points to begin your walk through the old Irkutsk.
You’ll easily handle The Green Line without a guide or a navigation service
Each point of interest has an information stand with a scheme of the route and some historical information. An audio guide at 8 (3952) 65-80-00 will provide you with the same information in Russian or English. The green stripe on the pavement will lead you back to the place you need even if you got lost or deviated from the route.
In the meantime, take a virtual walk on The Green Line. The website provides the tour in Russian and English.
