Today I have prepared for you something interesting and unusual. Remember, we talked about the history of tea in Russia? Now from China, through Mongolia, was carrying tea in Moscow, which is then supplied tea all of Western Russia. Irkutsk is one of the cities of the Tea road.
Despite the fact that we live in Siberia and how sometimes it seems like all the fun is happening in the Metropolitan regions,still have the things that we're particularly proud of. Taiga, cedars, sable, our minerals, our Siberian strong spirit, monuments and museums, and so forth, all will not count. I, for one, am proud that Irkutsk is a place, which was an important component of the tea road. This is why we have the opportunity to plunge into the past and learn many interesting things about the season.

the Great tea route from China to Europe was considered second only to the Great silk road on the volume of trade turnover. Together with tea were transported and many other goods, so the way of tea fostered economic development and cultural renewal in many countries. The path began in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the routes passed through more than a hundred and fifty cities of China, Mongolia and Russia.
In June 1727, in the valley of the small river Kyakhta was founded the fortress of Novo-Troitskaya. In 1728 Russian Ambassador to China Sava Lukich-Vladislavich Raguzinskii founded four miles from Novo-Troitskaya fortress trade settlement. In 1809 in Kyakhta Sloboda lived only merchants directly involved in trading operations.
