City and sights
Chita City is the capital of Transbaikal Region situated in valleys of Chita River and Ingoda River.
Russian settlement was founded in 1675 by Kozaks and manufacturers. In1851 Chita acquired the official status of the city. Nowadays Chita is up to such Far-Eastern capitals as Khabarovsk, Vladivostok, Blagoveshchensk. The name of the city comes from Ewenki’s word "chita"- clay, because the ground of Chita River valley is sticky and clayey.
Chita is the city of the sun. Weather here mostly sunny and cloudless, streets are decorated by poplars and pines as far as heaven. On the outskirts of the city the beautiful red-listed plant grows - rhododendron ( “bagul’nik”) , It’s amazing view when it’s blooming – abundant bushes of lilac flowers with pines on the background. On the city map Chita historical center represented as rectangular mesh of the streets. Due to the almost ideal geometry of the streets, it’s hard for stranger to get lost here.
By the way...
In the central part of the city, on a close spacing you may find Orthodox Church, mosque and synagogue. Such kind of neighborhood takes place because of multinational population of the city.
What to visit in Chita?
The first sight we advise tourists and city Guests to visit is long-standing building of General Post Office, constructed in 1893 according to the design of famous architect M.U. Arnold.
Also there are a lot of wooden domestic houses decorated by carving, most of them are wooden architecture monuments.
Another interesting place is Palace of Shumov brothers on Lenina Street. This monument of the beginning of XX century, one of the most beautiful building decorated by fretwork and looking like painted spice cake is situated in the center of the city. In 1911 the project of this building was awarded with Grand Prix award in Paris, same award was given to Gustav Eiffel, the author of Eiffel Tower.
As well we advise to visit Kazansky Cathedral Church, the new church constructed in 2004. It decorates the city and delight the eye of the citizens and guests of Chita by its surface beauty and harmonious sound of bells..
Chita is the famous place of Decembrists’ exile. They were sent here in 1827 and their influence on cultural live of local citizens was huge. So, one of the sights of the city is the museum "Decembrists’ Church" is located in the building of former wooden Michailo-Arhangelskaya Church. This Church was built on donation of citizens in 1771, 50 years before Decembrists appearance in Siberia. Some time ago two couples of Decembrists got married here- the Avenkovs and the Zavalishins. The Church is unique monument of Russian art of building and only one extant in Eastern Europe two-altar wooden church.
Where to walk?
Citizens and city guests like to walk on the central Lenin Square. Near here the sculpture "Love and faith"- the touching meeting of two lovers is situated. This symbolizes the respect to forefathers who developed the Transbaikalia and their wives.
And at the store "Petrovsky", closely located next to Railway Station you may buy wonderful watch-souvenirs of local production. By the way the building of Railway Station is more than 100 years old, and it is architectural heritage of Chita.
Drama Theater was founded in 1937 . At first it was Chita regional theater of musical comedy and the theatre company was represented by actors from Gor’kovsky Theatre of Operetta.
