    • Synopsis
    • Baikal is the most voluminous freshwater lake in the world located in the south of the Russian region of Siberia. It contains roughly 20% of the world's unfrozen surface fresh water. It is also among the clearest of all lakes, and thought to be the world's oldest lake of 25 million years. Baikal is home to more than 1,700 species of plants and animals, two thirds of which can be found nowhere else on Earth. Baikal is believed to be a mirror of the Universe – that's why scientists from all over the world are constantly doing research at Baikal – not only the lake itself, but also the Buryat tribes resided on the eastern side, their ancient habits and shaman rituals.
