Taltsy, the wooden village

Moving 47 kilometers to the south of Irkutsk we will find the city of Angará, which in addition to its beauty and natural landscapes, stands out for a citadel built entirely in wood by the Mongolians, called Taltsy. In this citadel there are no inhabitants, however it has been reconstructed and opened to the public so that tourists can get to know the way of life of the ancient inhabitants of Taltsy, representatives of the inhabitants of Siberia. Everything in the city has been arranged to reflect the daily life of these people, from the roads and streets to a kind of wild animal-proof food store called labaz Evenki. The traditions represented go beyond life, and you can learn about the way the inhabitants treated their dead. The dead were placed on poles about 3 meters high along with their most important and useful personal belongings because the Evenki believed that the dead, even after they died, kept their customs and belongings. Hunters in the area claim that they often find patches of indigenous clothing and strange objects, they say they should not touch them as this will cause negative consequences.
