The beauty of Bolshoy Goloustnoye The total duration of sunshine per year here is 2524 hours, which means that you will visit the sunniest place in Russia! You will see the extraordinary landscapes of nature, for the sake of which photographers come to the village, and the views of the majestic Baikal. From January to March, when the lake is covered with crystal ice and turns into a giant skating rink, you can join the visitors' favorite pastime. And the ice itself in Bolshoy Goloustnoye will decorate your collection with fantastic pictures: the ice sheet blooms with underwater forests and meadows of flowers woven from methane bubbles
Dry lake This name was given to the reservoir for a reason, it has an amazing feature: it is filled with water only in a leap year!
