Baikal is an incredible place where everyone should visit, and especially in winter! Just imagine, an endless icy desert, space under your feet with hundreds of thousands of bubbles, cracks and shades: from bottomless blue to turquoise blue! Lake Baikal is not only one of the most beautiful places in nature, but also, perhaps, the most sacred in Siberia, thanks to the many holy places associated with the faith of the local population in shamanic spirits.
