THIS IS IRKUTSK
Irkutsk is one of the largest cities in Siberia in Russia, located on the Baikal Lake shore in southern Siberia. Lake Baikal is the largest lake in the world by volume, and the deepest lake in the world with a maximum depth of 1 642 m. Irkutsk is a significant military city and seat of the Archbishop of the Russian Orthodox Church. The city is 5 185 km by rail from Moscow.
Irkutsk grew up around settlements established in 1653 by Ivan Pochabov for the collection of taxes from the locals. In 1760, the first road link was established between Moscow and Irkutsk, which contributed to rapid economic development. Trade with China increased.
THIS IS SHELEKHOV
Is a city in Irkutsk Oblast. Shelekhov has a railroad station on the Trans-Siberian Railroad, 20 km southwest Irkutsk. The city was named in honor of G. I. Shelikhov. It is located on the plains between the rivers Irkut and Olha.
Shelekhov was founded in 1953 when the first construction workers of the Irkutsk Aluminum Smelter had installed the first six housing tents. In 1962, Shelekhov was granted town status.
The first inhabitants were the people of the villages Olkha, Markovo, Vvedenschina and the settlement of Bolshoj Lug. In June 1956 the first workers of the Orel Komsomol arrived on train to the site.
