A Unique Campus in a Remarkable City

The Liden & Denz Irkutsk campus incorporates all the benefits of modern classrooms, such as noise insulation and WiFi, without sacrificing the perks of historic architecture. The Russian language institute is housed in a recently-renovated landmark building built in the 19th century on the corner of bustling Ulitsa Gryaznova and Ulitsa Karla Marksa. With natural light and a prime location, our campus is a place that students will enjoy coming to every day during their studies.

Liden & Denz Irkutsk is easily accessible by public transport, and Ulitsa Karla Marxa is arguably the most beautiful street in Irkutsk, holding many opportunities for casual walks, sightseeing, cultural activities, and more. Students are also within walking distance of the Fashion Block pedestrian zone, as well as public transport to the Dekabristov museums. No matter what your interests or pace, you are sure to be intrigued by your surroundings as a Liden & Denz student in Irkutsk.
