Sightseeing in Russia: tours in Ulan - Ude
Ulan-Ude (earlier Verhneudinsk) is the capital city of republic Buryatia in Russian Federation. It is situated on the banks of Uda river in the east of Siberia. The current name was given to the city in 1934 and means "red Uda" or "red gate" in Buryat reflecting the communist ideology of the Soviet Union to which it belonged. After a large fire in 1878, the city was almost completely rebuilt. The Trans-Siberian Railway reached the city in 1900 causing an explosion in growth. Until 1991 the city was closed to foreigners. Now Ulan-Ude is an old historic and cultural center in Siberia.
