People who live near Lake Baikal call it the “Sea of Baikal.” Indeed, when you stand at the water’s edge and can’t see the opposite shore – you really start to think that the locals are right.
Except for the well-known fact that Baikal is the largest lake by volume in the world, there are at least ten other fantastic points of interest about this unique place:
This enormous, marvelous lake is surrounded by mountain ridges and hills; the western shore is rockier and more precipitous than the eastern coastline. The fascinating nature and landscapes, as well as the variety of flora and fauna, attract tourists from all over the world. The region was awarded status as a preserve of global importance: by number of rare plants and animals, it surpasses Madagascar and the Galapagos Islands. The best time to vacation at Baikal is from May to October. But whenever you visit this unique place, you will never forget its magnificent wild nature!
