This site near the Ethnographic Museum is the venue for major festivals including the Surkharban in early June, the biggest Buryat sporting event of the year featuring archery, wrestling and exhilarating feats of horsemanship. While the hippodrome lies dormant for most of the year, nearby you’ll find a pair of attractive datsany backed by stupas and trees aflutter with prayer flags. Take marshrutka 37 from pl Sovetov.
