Next, we will visit the Sukhbaatar Square, which is the central square named after the revolutionary hero of 1921 Damdin Sukhbaatar whom declared independence from China (now, the name is officially changed to Chinggis Khan Square). We will also visit the National Museum of Mongolia formerly known as National Museum of Mongolian History- that exhibits prehistory, pre-Mongol Empire history, Mongol Empire, Mongolia during Qing rule, ethnography and traditional life, and twentieth-century history. We will also visit the Central Museum of Dinosaurs which is famous for its authentic dinosaur skeletons.
The other two attractions are Bogd Khan Palace Museum and Zaisan Memorial. The Bogd Khan Palace Museum (the winter palace) is one of the few Ulaanbaatar historical attractions not destroyed by the Soviet and Mongolian communists. It used to be a winter residence of the last Bogd Khaan of Mongolia, Javzandamba. The palace compound was built between 1893 and 1903, and is well known for its Gate of Peace, Temple and personal library of Bogd Khaan. Among the museum's exhibits are sculptures by Mongolia's first Bogd Khaan Zanabazar, the famous Taras. The museum has 21 invaluable sculptures of Taras.
The Zaisan memorial lies in the foothills to the south of Ulan Bator (i.e. Ulaanbaatar). It was built by the Russians as a monument to Soviet soldiers fallen in World War Two. A tiled mural lies within a huge concrete ring, which is raised about 5 m above the ground. Zaisan is a popular tourist attraction and one of the highlights of Ulan Bator due to the fantastic views it offers over the city.
In the evening, enjoy the cultural program that includes Mongolian throat singing, folk dances and opera.
