Soviet Square

Soviet Square is the main square of Ulan-Ude founded in the early 18th century. Until 1931, it was called Nagornaya Square. All around it the buildings serve administrative purposes. It includes the Khural (Parliament) of the Buryat Republic, the city administration, the Federal Security Service, the Central Post, the State TV and Radio committee and the State University. On the square are located some of Ulan-Ude’s main attractions: the monument to Lenin, the arch built in honor of Tsarevich Nicolas, the Soviets’ House and the Opera and Ballet Theatre. In 2008, the square was entirely renovated.
