Brief of Ulaanbaatar

in 1675

The Origin of Ulaanbaatar

The city of Ulaan Baatar was first established in 1639 and was set up in its current location some 228 years ago in 1778 and was named the “City of Felt”, after which it was known as the “Great Camp” ruled under the Bogd Khaan. It has only been referred to as Ulaan Baatar or “Red Hero” and been declared the official capital of Mongolia three years following the Russians invasion in 1921. The Russian influence for more than 70 years left Ulaan Baatar a relatively young city, since many of the original buildings, including monasteries have been destroyed and replaced by Soviet-style buildings.
