BRATSK

TSTC TRAVEL GUIDE

🇷🇺

BRATSK OVERVIEW

Some doubt whether Bratsk is worth a stop off but having been there ourselves we have no doubt a night or two here should be included. Its history is fascinating, articulately the cities roll in the 2nd World War for which there is a beautiful memorial. A visit offers a real insight into life in Soviet Russia you rarely get in more mainstream stops. The huge hydroelectric dam is impressive and travelling across it by train an experience. Even the central area is of interest as an example of a city totally planned from scratch and seemingly in one go.

REASON TO VISIT BRATSK

An essential BAM stop this is one of the best places to learn both about the building of the BAM as well as the Soviet thinking behind it.

BRATSK TRAVEL TIP

Some will say to miss Bratsk out but we think it is a must and as, if not more, interesting than the other BAM stops.
