The Hodigitria Cathedral in downtown Ulan-Ude. The state in which this monument is left is really a shame, expecially since inside it there is supposedly a collection of art works but it was impossible to enter. The park in front has a children playground where the little ones have a great time even in winter. It is also a meeting point for some interesting characters, which will always pull out a bottle of vodka (or so they say) from up their sleeve and crack the most unbelievable stories. If you are game, be prepared to meet the whole neighbourhood.
