Ulaanbaatar city – Улаанбаатар хот
The capital city of Mongolia – Ulaanbaatar is at first glance a rather ugly city full of apartment blocks and ger areas – it can remind you slums, but in fact it is a normal housing, in yurts is clean and there you will find a TV or computers.
The biggest attraction of Ulaanbaatar is undoubtedly Gandantegchenlin Khiid – the centre of Buddhism in Mongolia. Museums worth seeing are Museum of Nature, where you’ll see unique dinosaur skeletons, Museum of Choijin Lama – oracle, which own beautiful Cham masks and certainly Bogdgegen’s Winter Palace. Pleasant is also a trip to the Zaisan, Russian monument in the south of Ulaanbaatar. It is on the top of a small hill, which has a beautiful view of the city and a new large statue of Buddha built underneath. From the Zaisan you can also climb up the hills of Bogdkhan Uul. Ulaanbaatar has a lot to offer, although its true atmosphere one know only after a long time spent here.
