Irkutsk, the 130th quarter

19 photo with description
The 130th historical quarter of Irkutsk is bounded by Sedova Streets (formerly Verkhne-Baikalskaya or Letne-Baikalskaya, then Verkhne-Amurskaya and Sredne-Amurskaya - the summer route from Baikal), Kozhova (formerly Workshop) and July 3rd (formerly Zimne -Baikalskaya, Nizhne-Baikalskaya, then Nizhne-Amurskaya - winter road to Lake Baikal, which partially passed along the Angara ice). Two roads of the quarter, providing communication with Lake Baikal, were significant. There was an artisan settlement between these roads from time immemorial - artisans and petty bureaucracy settled here

From 2009 to 2011, large-scale work was carried out to restore the wooden houses of the quarter, part of the houses from other areas of the city were dismantled and moved to this quarter, some were done anew, which is why many are outraged and call the district “shanghai”.

I meet this wolf in almost every city. It’s as if there’s nothing smarter than that.

Charoite room

Charoite room, Gift shop (right). Irkutsk, 130th quarter, July 3, 15/1. Beautiful carved wooden house.

The name comes from the rare mineral with which the rooms are decorated. Charoite is mined in only one place on the planet - on the Char River in the north of the Irkutsk Region.

To create such a quarter, the Irkutsk Sloboda Foundation was created, the funds spent were distributed as follows:
10% - budget funds
90% - private funds
September 14, 2011 on the day of the celebration of the 350th anniversary of the city of Irkutsk, the opening of the "Irkutsk Sloboda" took place, now every year on its territory celebrations are held in honor of City Day.

The project “130th quarter of the historical buildings of Irkutsk” took the second place in the rating “The Most Significant Architectural Projects in Russia for 2012”.
1st place - Bridge to Russky Island in Vladivostok
2nd place - 130th quarter

Wooden architecture is extremely difficult to preserve and restore, so I do not see anything wrong with such remakes. The main thing is a great place for the promenade of citizens, crowds of tourists, solid incomes for the city. And the quarter is known throughout the country!
