The name of the guy who didn’t visit the city in German sounds like someone who beats iron…


#2642

Irkutsk

Irkutsk and Eisenhower

In 1960, Irkutsk was set to be visited by President Eisenhower. The visit did not take place, due to the fact that an American spy plane was captured in the USSR airspace. However, Irkutsk had already thoroughly prepared for it. The fountain, which is still on the Kirov square, was created in preparation for the presidential visit. A paved road from Irkutsk to Lake Baikal was also constructed for the arrival, which never took place. Now tourists have a much easier time traveling in and out of the city.

Hello from the other side

There is a city in Chile called Punta Arenas. It is the furthest city south of the 46th parallel south. It is also the antipode of Irkutsk: it is located diametrically across from it.

Sorry . Could not seem to find the Eisenhower clue and you know I am useless at Google maps :joy: Interesting Railway …looking at all Stations , I would like to do the journey one day


#2646

Didn’t know that Eisenhower had indeed German ancestors. Now I know.

The Eisenhauer (German for “iron hewer/miner”) family migrated from Karlsbrunn in Nassau-Saarbrücken, to North America, first settling in York, Pennsylvania, in 1741, and in the 1880s moving to Kansas.


#2647

The Transsiberian railway goes through pretty boring landsapes for most of the time, but it get’s interesting once you arrive at Irkutsk (Baikal Lake) and then further on to the Pacific coast.
