Learn Russian in Irkutsk - Language Courses in Siberia

Russian courses at Liden & Denz Irkutsk

Liden & Denz Irkutsk is located in the historic centre of the East Siberian city, in a recently renovated 19th century building on the corner of Ulitsa Gryasnova and Karla Marksa.

The name of the street (Karl Marx) may suggest otherwise, but Karla Marksa, whose construction was inspired by St. Petersburg’s Nevsky Prospekt, is considered Irkutsk’s most beautiful promenade.

From here, the Angara River is within easy walking distance. The pedestrian zone “Modny Kvartal” with its numerous restaurants and cafés in traditional half-timbered houses is only a stone’s throw away.

The famous Decembrist Museum is also easily accessible from the school by public transport. The nearest bus stop is directly opposite the school entrance.

The location of Liden & Denz Irkutsk is the perfect starting point for long walks, cultural excursions and for discovering Irkutsk’s nightlife.
