    It was in mid-August. Me, my friend, my son-in-law and my fifteen-year-old grandson.
    We started in the Bobrovy Log (Beaver's Wash) funpark, took a chairlift and hiked up in the hills. Unfortunately, we were somewhat pressed for time that day so it was impossible to go to Stolby (world-famous butts) but that national park offers excellent hikes, views and panoramas for anyone with any time-table and in any season! Just try to avoid holidays and days-off - might be crowdy.
    Awesome environment, squirrels and chipmunks abound (take some seeds with you, better pine nuts), well-maintained paths, good navigation (in Russian!). Places to grab a bite are scarce though (I mean, really scarce) so a lunch box - and water - would be a good idea. Mosquitos are not a problem but think about ticks (in summer - ha-ha!).

    Отлично организованный и оборудованный парк. Было интересно и весело всем, и мамам, и папам, и подросткам. Узнали для себя много нового. С семьей мы были в подобных парках в Бельгии, Англии, ЮАР - уровень тот же или в чем-то выше.
    We had great time in this park! It has been a lot of entertainment and fun for all: parents and teenagers! Easily spent 3 hours at the place and would love to come back. Previously been in similar places in UK, Belgium, South Africa, standards are same or at some things higher. Really greatly organised!

    In 2019, my family and I went to Lake Baikal. This is a very unusual lake. It is the deepest lake on the planet. The water there is specularly clean. Very beautiful landscapes. This lake is unusual, when you come to it, you have a big surge of sensations of something unthinkable. Now I will talk about the lake. Baikal is located in the center of Asia, in Russia, on the border of the Irkutsk region and the Republic of Buryatia. The lake stretches from North to South-West for 636 km in the form of a giant Crescent. The width of lake Baikal ranges from 25 to 80 km .... By the area of the water mirror, lake Baikal is the sixth largest lake in the world. 336 permanent rivers and streams flow into lake Baikal, while half of the volume of water entering the lake is brought by Selenga. It flows out of lake Baikal only one river The question of the age of lake Baikal should be considered open. Usually in the literature, a figure of 20-25 million years is given. However, the use of various methods for determining the age gives values from 20-30 million to several tens of thousands of years. But if we assume that the traditional point of view is correct, then Baikal can be considered the oldest lake on Earth. I will remember this place for life.In 2014, my family and I went to Lake Baikal. This is a very unusual lake. It is the deepest lake on the planet. The water there is specularly clean.

    Actually, "ionesee" means "big water" in Evenki language (Evenks are one of numerous indigenous ethnoses living in Siberia). We first saw it in mid-August in Krasnoyarsk but then we drove five hundred kilometers down to Khakassia (an autonomous republic in Siberia), then another five hundred further down to Tuva (also an autonomous republic, not far from Mongolia) and everywhere Yenisey (this is the correct way to spell it!) was starkly different.
    Calm and comparatively warm in Krasnoyarsk due to water flowing through hot turbines of the Sayno-Shushenskaya dam, Yenisey is rampant by its foot, placid in Khakassia and absolutely tranquil in Tuva's capital Kyzyl where it actually starts.
    Thus, Krasnoyarsk is not at all the place to feel its might. Go to that dam instead. You'll be awestruck and overwhelmed by the river's thrust. Never hesitate to drive these five hundred plus kilometers - it's a once-in-your-lifetime opportunity!

    Really nice museum! Extremly interactive! Some nice experiments and illusions. But the best is the second part: Rotationg tunnel which creates the illusion you will flip over. Not possible to walk there stright! And best mirror labirinth I have ever seen! Took me half an hour to find the exit, I almost got lost there :-)

    We were there in mid-August during a private city tour. Me, my friend, my son-in-law and my fifteen-years-old grandson. Due to tremendous taiga fires in Yakutia (more than a 2,100 kilometers long beeline distance!) the day was rather hazy so there was not a lot to see from a vantage point nearby.
    It'd be useful to note, however, that it was that very hill Russians used as an observation post during their once perennial "tug-of-war" with indigenous people and their nomad allies in the XVIIth century. While newcomers were always greatly outnumbered by locals, the former enjoyed the advantage of firearms and artillery where the latter had pikes and arrows only. Thus, in the end of the day victory was usually on the Russian side though unexpected raids of their enemies inflicted big harm to crops, livestock and wooden buildings outside of their forts. Quite often the result was severe famine.
    So, it was not that tranquil here some three hundred years ago. At all...
    As to practical details concerning that chapel, please see other reviews.

    Beautiful and large museum of wooden architecture and houses. It's lovely to wander around, but many of the houses have exhibits inside. Especially loved the school room with the teacher's accommodation and the ostrog fort which was what was originally the style of settlements that first appeared as the Russians migrated east.

    It is a must-stop for everyone coming to Olkhon and a sacred place for local Buryats. That was the case for centuries until Soviet communists exterminated or incarcerated virtually all local shamans. When a boy I visited the place and I remember it just like a beautiful rock - no voodoo stuff, no posts decorated with ribbons. It was only in 1981 that the aithorities gave it a status of "natural sightseeing" but traditions of the past started to return much later, after the collapse of the communist power.
    It is a magical place - a gorgeous view, sandy beaches, deep blue waters of Baikal. It contains 19% of the world's sweet water reserves - can you imagine? Try to find a secluded place (not easy in high season) and just think of what was here, say, 500 years ago. Admire it at sunset or better at sunrise - no chirping tourists! And please - behave yourself. No climbing on Shamanka rock, no shouting, no alcohol, no littering. Local spirits shall not forgive you. (In the times passed women even were not allowed there.)

    We went here before visibly the lake and Lystvianka. It is a must, if you ask me.
    We learned a lot of interesting and valuable information for the like and it’s surrounding which helped us to better understand Baykal. There is small area full of aquariums so you can see all major types of fish as well as the seals here.
    So this is the only entrance to this great area.
