Lake Baikal is a unique place in the world!

The waters of Lake Baikal are replenished by 336 rivers carrying icy streams of melting snows of the mountains into the lake. The water temperature in summer does not heat up above 10 degrees. Even the ice on the surface of the lake is puzzling scientists’ unusual shape and structure. One Angara flows out of Baikal, the naughty daughter of an old man who fell in love with the strong Yenisei.
