This may be a coincidence, but...
Voynich was exiled not to Irkutsk but to a place nearby
called Tunka. Now there is a National Park - and I found
this interesting note (among others) on the Web:
The park's borders are coterminous with those of the Tunkinsky
Administrative Raion of Buriatia (roughly equivalent to a U.S.
county). The park is in a transitional ecological zone between
the Mongolian steppes and the Siberian taiga (Galaziy, Baikal
Atlas, 1993). Throughout the park there are numerous mineral
springs, which attract many Buriat and Russian tourists because
of their medicinal benefits, but also because of their religious
significance in Buriat culture. [...] Other sites throughout
the region have historical-cultural or religious (Buddhist
and shamanic) significance for Buriats as well.
