Chita is the official capital of ZabaykalskyKrai located in valleys of the rivers Chita and Ingoda. In about 1675 the Russian settlement was founded on a place of the modern city in the mouth of the same name river. Cossacks and industrialists were residents of the settlement. They settled on the winter quarters build a little earlier by people of the Petr Beketov. Today Chita is "mother" of the Far East capitals, such as Khabarovsk, Vladivostok, Blagoveshchensk.

In 1851 Chita got the official status of the city. The name of the city probably was originated from the Evenki word "Chita" which means “clay” that is very similar to be the truth, because soil of the Chitarivervalley is viscous.


Chita is the city of the sun. That is true, weather here almost always sunny and clear, city streets are decorated by sky-tall poplars and pines. And these pines are not artificial, they are residue of a forest. The remarkable plant from the Red Listgrows in the neighborhood of the city– the Daursky rhododendron or the Labrador tea. When it blossoms (usually it occurs at the beginning of May) it's amazing – pines against bushes covered within the lilac color flowers.


Chita makes a special effort in development of Baikal region tourism. The first sight with which we advise to start is old building of post office.


Further must see wooden houses decorated with a carving, many of which are wooden architecture monuments.

Pearl of Chita, its stone flower, the beginning of twentieth century architecture monument – the Shumovsky Palace. The building belonged to gold industry entrepreneurs - the five brothers Shumovs. The building is plentifully decorated with moldings is considered as the most beautiful in the city. The project of the building in 1911 got the Grand Prix award in Paris. It is the same award by which Gustav Eifel was awarded for the Eiffel Tower.


Also we advise you to see Kazan Cathedral – new church constructed in 2004. It is the main temple of the Chita and Baikal region and it is the largest temple in Siberia and in the Far East. The Reverend Sergey Radonezhsky relics piece was put under basis of this temple.


A number of unique places and structures stand out from a huge set of the city sights. The Chita datsan is to their number - the first datsan in the capital of Zabaykalsky Krai. It is the Buryat's Buddhist monastery - university.


Chita – the well-known deportation place of the Decembrists, they were deported in 1827, and their influence to culture is huge. So, one of Chita sights is the Decembrists church constructed in 1771.


Once long ago two couples of Decembrists were married here – Annenkovs and Zavalishins. The museum was organized here at the end of XX century, it contains about one thousand exhibits, these are original goods of Decembrists.


The Chita museums are various. The Baikal regional museum of local lore - is the oldest museums of Siberia and the Far East.


Collections of the museum represent history and the nature of Baikal region and the adjacent countries. Unique exhibits on archeology, religion, ethnography, art of the indigenous and Russian people are stored.


Within the city the Kenon lake is located. It is the place where to spend hot summer days to have a rest with family.


If you pass a little on the Cheeta-Hilok route, you will find the beautiful lake Arey. It is very pure, with therapeutic mud and rich with fish, all these factors made it popular for tourists around the year.
