Ulan Bator was founded in the 17th century to be the religious centre of the country. Today, it's a modern city that houses nearly 45 % of the whole population of Mongolia. Of course, the city still has Soviet signs, but it changes very quickly and we can discover, hidden in its large streets, many treasures and exceptional museums.
Take advantage of this visiting day to discover and enjoy Ulan Bator.
