Sukhbaatar Square in Ulaanbaatar
in the heart of Ulaanbaatar
Located in the heart of Ulaanbaatar, the Sukhbaatar square reflects the spirit of modern Mongolia and impresses with its tremendous size. The square is named after one of the leaders of Mongolia's 1921 revolution Damdin Sukhbaatar, who is a revolutionary symbol of independent Mongolia. His equestrian statue features the center of the square.
Here you will see the Government Palace, a bronze colonnade monument to Genghis Khaan, Mongolian stock exchange building, State Ballet and Opera House, Gallery and a number of other buildings. Beautiful Parliament building and a huge monument to Genghis Khaan, surrounded by skyscrapers, are an interesting contrast to the historic past and the present of the country.
Besides, Sukhbaatar square is the main venue for the state ceremonies, national holidays and cultural events. Good place to sit and contemplate, the best place to view the city skyline from ground level. Especially beautiful at night, many families with their children congregate here on this huge plaza but the huge statue of Genghis Khaan is the highlight.
