Decembrists Houses

information about russia  Irkutsk - Russia, Irkutskaya Oblast'

When the tsar Alexander I died, without direct descendants, he was substituted by his younger brother Nikolai I, with a military career, instead of being Constantine, tsar elder brother, who enjoyed the favours of the officials with liberal and reformist ideas.
During December 1825 (that is why they are called Decembrists) the intellectuals protested against the new tsar Nikolai I and five of them were executed, but 116, all aristocrats, were condemned to forced labour and dispatched to Siberia in exile. Among the several inhospitality places where they were sent, there was Irkutsk, where they performed an educative task with the population, were very much appreciated, and considered martyrs and heroes.
Today, some of the wooden houses where the Decembrist lived are museums, with two floors, furniture of the epoch, piano, etc., where you can enter for a few roubles.
Do not miss Trubetzkoi House and Volkonskii House. Visits are from 10.00 to 18.00. Tuesdays are closed.
