Severobaykalsk is a city in the north of Lake Baikal, the city owes its appearance to the construction of the BAM and is an important railway junction. First settlers -Komsomol members arrived July 23 1974 and founded a labor camp consisting of tents and railway wagons. The city received the status in 1980.

First house in Severobaykalsk

The first house of Severobaykalsk, built by Leningrad builders, October 1979(as indicated on the sign on the building). Leningradsky prospect, 4. Seismic activity in these places is up to 9 points, so the houses were specially designed in Leningrad and are two houses with broken shapes, the courtyard is closed from the winds.

In the market, most products are related to fishing and tourism. The most promising areas. You can even buy a boat on the market.

Amazing "space" stall, I saw this only once in Sevastopol.

Rare bus
A rare bus, I haven’t seen these for a long time.

The city is small both in size and population - in total 20 thousand. The second largest city in Buryatia after Ulan-Ude, an interesting fact is that in the early 90s a petition was signed to secede from Buryatia and join the Irkutsk region, with which the city has more trade relations. If tourism to Baikal will be more actively developed, then the city has excellent prospects in terms of tourism. Again, active work is underway to expand the BAM and the flow by rail will increase in the coming years.
