    A view of the Maloye More (Small Sea) Strait from Olkhon Island.

    Lake Baikal, a rift lake located in southern Siberia, is truly a sight to see. It is the world's largest lake by volume, as well as the deepest and oldest lake on Earth. Proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, it also serves as a home to thousands of species of plants and animals, many of which are unique to that region.  It is small wonder that the lake became a popular destination for tourists from all over the world, and this gallery allows you to glimpse the sights you may see should you choose to visit that place.
