The lower part of Lenin Street, the main street in Ulan-Ude, from Sovetskaya to Kirov Street, is a pedestrian street, therefore the locals call it “Ulan-Ude’s Arbat”. The paved Arbat was solemnly unveiled on the day of the anniversary of the city, July 3, 2004. In the street two sculptures were erected: the cornucopia and the staff of Mercury, god of trade (this sculpture reflects the meaning of the city’s coat of arms) and two birds symbolizing love and the protection of nature.
