“…on the first day God created the Earth. He looked at it and realized how untender it was. He worried – will The Erath hold a resentment for this. And so he gave it the best he could – Lake Baikal”. 

This is the legend about the creation of the unique lake. Due to its enormous size, it is practically impossible to perceive all the richness of Lake Baikal.

These will convince you in the uniqueness of the flora and fauna of the deepest fresh-water source in the world. In the museum, there are 17 thousand exhibits in total. They are landscapes of reliefs and landscapes of the Baikal region, mineral samples, fossils of ancient animals and many more.
