    Dear Friends! If you would like to enjoy Russian nature then one of the first places to see is ‪#‎Baikal‬. You should see it with your onw eyes as words will never express the greatness and amenity of this unique place in the world. Just imagine that the size of lake is 31 722 sq meters which equals to the size of Belgium or the Netherlads! It is the deepest lake in the world. It contains ~19% of the world's fresh water.
    The climate near Baikal is influenced by the lake. The winters here are mild and summers are cool. What is piculiar about this region is the number of sunny days. Only 37 days a year are without sun. Even the resorts of the Russian Black sea coast have less, not to tell about the rest of the country.
    If you plan a Trans-Siberian railway journey - Baikal is a must see place Смайлик «smile»
    If you have less plans but would like to learn more about Russia - Baikal is a must see place!
