Irkutsk is a location in 80 Days. It is situated in western Russia.
Irkutsk is largely a mining camp, although its population is also devoutly religious and churches can be spotted on every street corner. Despite the precious metals being exported, the citizens themselves are relatively poor.
Passepartout searches for onward travel but finds all of the barges transporting precious metals are heading west, not east.
Goland, a Mongolian princess met aboard the Trans-Siberian Express, wil disembark the train here. Passepartout can choose to follow if he is pursuing her romantically, but she leaves quickly. He assumes she has continued to Urga and can the knowledge of Urga's Garuda to entice Fogg into following her.
If Passepartout travelled on the Cold Wind Blows from Prague to Odessa and talked to Gregori, he can explore and look for the harbour master and discover that the two men are twins. Staying the night at the hotel, Passepartout can go out at night and wander to the docks to meet the harbour master and his wife Sophia Lom. Passepartout can realize that the harbour married his brother's woman and refuse to be silent about it - the harbour master will throw him in the river. They will meet Sophia Lom again if they take the Iron Ore Freight Train to Beijing.
The people of Irkutsk do not go out at night, but Passepartout cannot figure out if they are too scared to of if they are just so tired from a hard day's work. If he decides to roam the streets at night, he will run into a palm-reading beggar who will predict "a great loss" in Hong Kong.
