Learn Russian in the heart
of Siberia with Liden & Denz!

Liden & Denz Intercultural Institute of languages offers intensive Russian language courses in Irkutsk, the Eastern Siberian capital. Make a stop on your Trans-Siberian trip to boost your language skills, or spend some weeks learning Russian and enjoying the authentic beauty of Irkutsk and lake Baikal!

In 2018, our Winter-Spring courses run from February, 5 to March, 30. This period is probably the best time of year to discover Baikal, when the lake's transparent turquoise surface is frozen solid and the temperatures are subzero, while the air is dry and the skies are sunny.


Liden & Denz in Irkutsk is located in the historical centre of the Eastern Siberian capital, in a recently renovated landmark building from the 19th century at the corner of Gryaznova ulitsa and ulitsa Karla Marksa.

Liden & Denz Irkutsk is the perfect starting point for nice long strolls, cultural activities, sightseeing, and even bar hopping.

Our new and spacious six classrooms have all access to natural light and are fully equipped with modern devices together with sound isolation and free wi-fi.


We teach Russian in Russian from day one. This develops an ability to interact in Russian much faster and helps overcome any language barrier. Of course you will learn grammar alongside, but you will do so using new words and language skills adapted to daily situations.
Groups are small (maximum 6 students per group) and are formed according to results of an assessment test, which is compulsory for all students.

Our Irkutsk campus operates in the following periods:
Winter 2018: 5 February - 30 March.
Summer 2018: 4 June - 28 September


The Liden & Denz team has created some fascinating activities to make sure you make most of your stay in Irkutsk.

Unmissable excursions In Irkutsk include a day-trip along Lake Baikal in a steam train and a beautiful journey via the Circum-Baikal Railway. We also organize excursions to Listvyanka, the closest place to Irkutsk on the Baikal shore, with a hike to the top of the mountain “Kamen Cherskogo”; trips to the eco village “Svetley Yar” and its enchanted “Forest of Wonders”; the Taltsy Museum of Architecture and Ethnography and much more.

Go rafting with us on the river Irkut, experience the beauty of the taiga and the crystal water of the river, and enjoy some fresh fish at the end of the day. Our cooking classes give you the opportunity to cook the delicious traditional Russian dish of pelmeni.
