Some of the more famous buildings in UB. Above is the post office. Many directions begin with - "from the post office you go....." Just below is the stock exchange - pink on the left, and the Golomt Bank - green on the right. To the right is the ballet theater. These buildings are on the periphery of Sukhbaatar Square.

These are pictures of the Square, and the Parliament Building at the back. Chinggis Khan sits in front of the building. There is another statue, very recently unveiled, in the center of the square of Sukhbaatar, the leader of the 1921 Revolution.

Above is the Ulaanbaatar Hotel, complete with a statue of Lenin! Yes, Lenin....this is UB's only five star hotel. It is right across the street from the Mongolian State University of Education, which is next to my school.

This is a manhole...note, no cover. One of the hazards of walking in UB....I had to include it in my walking tour.
