Ulaanbaatar is a city of many different and distinct layers.Long gone are the days when this city was just a typical, drab Soviet-bloc town in the middle of nowhere.Day trips to the east include the Tsonjin Boldog Genghis Khan Statue.
Almost every family in Ulaanbaatar has a zuslan building where they spend the summer among the forests and natural scenery of the Selbe river valley.
South of the Narni Zam road is the affluent southern part of Ulaanbaatar with luxury apartments lining the Tuul River.
Ger districts line the northern part of the city center and stretch 7 km north to the Dambadarjaalin Monastery built in 1765.
The city is known for its impressive museums, old monasteries, high quality restaurants, cinemas, theatres, and proximity to scenic natural spots.
In 2016, after extensive preparations, the city hosted the 11th Asia-Europe Meeting.
