Mongolian capital city - Ulaanbaatar
Ulaanbaatar is the general base for all business and development and it is the natural headquarters from which go all major travels to the countryside. The city is situated in a valley at an elevation of about 1350 m (about 4.300 ft) and is surrounded by four holy peaks, which make a wonderful backdrop. From the beginning of 21th century, new hotels, restaurants and supermarkets, public places, business districts have emerged and transformed the city into a thriving modern metropolis. In 2007, the capital city received its 1.000.000 th citizen. Ulaanbaatar is the political, cultural, industrial, and transportation center of the country, connected by highway to all the major towns in Mongolia and by rail to the Trans-Siberian and Chinese railroad systems. It presents contrast of soviet style old buildings and modern sky scrapers. The city boasts numerous impressive museums and a wide selection of restaurants. The city has all the convenience of modern life and yet if you want to escape for a few hours the countryside is only a bus ride away. Last few years surprising numbers of building cranes are seen above the city views, proving a recent dynamic growth of economy and high interest of foreign investments. Although Ulaanbaatar is located at the highest altitude with the coldest climatic conditions, it gives the visitor a very warm welcome.
