Baron von Ungern – The Monster Who Helped Make an Independent Mongolia
Posted by Selena Travel / Oct 27, 2021

Baron Roman von Ungern-Sternberg sounds like the kind of guy Mongolian parents can use as a threat for misbehaving children. His deeds are truly the stuff of nightmares – murdering deserting soldiers, keeping wolves in his attic for his enemies, and burning people alive inside of haystacks. Without him, however, there might be no independent Mongolia today.

MONGOLIAN CULTURE SERIES - MONGOL GER
Posted by Selena Travel / Oct 27, 2021

Ger (aka Yurt) has been a reliable accommodation of the nomads of Central Asia for the last three thousand years.

Interesting traditions involving gers include that the altar space usually serves as the traditional seating area for elders or respected leaders.

A Little Bit of Old Ulaanbaatar - Bogd Khan’s Winter Palace
Posted by Selena Travel / Oct 27, 2021

However, if you were a lucky visitor to Ich Khirie, as Ulaanbaatar was known then, you would be standing near the largest building in town, if you could even get close enough. This is the home of the Bogd Khan.
