For example - Lake Seliger, Tver and Novgorod regions. A place that does not need an introduction. By the way, Seliger has another name - Lake Ostashkov, by the name of Ostashkov standing on the lake shore. The area of the lake is 260 sq. Km, including about 38 sq. Km. km falls on the islands (there are more than 160 of them on Seliger). The largest among them is the island of Khachin. The area of the entire pool is 2275 square km. Seliger accepts 110 tributaries. The largest are the rivers Krapivenka, Soroga and Seremukha. Only one Selizharovka river flows from it.
The lake lies at an altitude of 205 meters above sea level and has a glacial origin. This explains its peculiar shape - it is not a lake in the usual sense, but rather a chain of lakes stretching from north to south for 100 km and connected by short narrow channels. The coastline with a length of over 500 km is distinguished by its indentation - capes overgrown with forests, picturesque bays deep into the land, diverse in shape of the island. The water in Seliger is clear, transparency reaches 5 meters. On the shore of the southern part of Lake Seliger are the city of Ostashkov and the estate "New Yeltsy".
Lake Baskunchak, Akhtubinsky district, Astrakhan region. Baskunchak is a salt lake with an area of about 115 square km in the Akhtuba region of the Astrakhan region, about 270 km north of the Caspian Sea, and 53 km east of the Volga. Baskunchak Lake is part of a unique natural complex, which includes Mount Big Bogdo. In 1997, the Bogdinsko-Baskunchaksky natural complex was declared a reserve (Bogdinsko-Baskunchaksky reserve), where a special environmental regime was established on an area of 53.7 thousand hectares. On the coast of the lake there are deposits of healing clay. In June-August, tourists come to the lake who bathe in brine and take mud baths. One does not have to talk about the beauty of these places. There are no fewer photographers than those who want to improve their health.
Altai mountains represent a complex system of the highest ranges in Siberia, separated by deep river valleys and vast intramountain and intermountain basins. Mountain system at the junction of the borders of Russia, Mongolia, China and Kazakhstan. It is divided into South Altai (South-Western), Southeast Altai and Eastern Altai, Central Altai, Northern and North-Eastern Altai, and North-Western Altai. Altai, Katun reserves and Ukok plateau together form the UNESCO World Heritage Site Altai - Golden Mountains. Thousands of tourists come to Altai. This is a favorite place for photo tours and independent trips.
The nature of Russia is little studied by foreign tourists, who often visit the same boring places from worn-out advertising booklets
Dombay-Ulgen - the top of the western part of the Dividing Range of the Greater Caucasus (on the border of Abkhazia and the Karachay-Cherkess Republic). Dombay-Ulgen is the highest peak of Abkhazia, located east of the village of Dombay, has three peaks: western (4036 m), main (4046 m) and eastern (3950 m). A steep ridge departs from the main peak to the north, ending in a decline - the "Dombay Saddle". From the Dombay saddle, there is a classic route (category 3B), accessible for climbing in one day with a descent to the camp.
Blue Lakes, Cherek-Balkaria Gorge, Kabardino-Balkaria. A group of five karst lakes in the Cherek region of Kabardino-Balkaria is located at the foot of a rocky ridge, from where the Cherek-Balkar Gorge begins. Located at the entrance to the gorge, Blue Lake is a unique natural phenomenon, interesting not only for Kabardino-Balkaria, but also throughout the country. The uniqueness of the Lower Blue Lake lies in the fact that with a relatively small surface (only 235 x 130 m), its depth reaches 258 meters. The water temperature on the surface in winter and summer is about +9 degrees Celsius. Not a single stream or stream flows into the lake, but about 70 million liters flow daily.
The lake level is unchanged, which is explained by powerful underwater sources. The blue color of the water is due to the presence of hydrogen sulfide and the refraction of light rays in a deep pool. The nature here is quite picturesque: green hills, dense beech forests on steep slopes, and in the distance, in a blue haze - peaks glistening in the sun. Closer to Babugent, the greens become brighter, juicier. Near the village of Babugent there is a fork in the road. At the beginning of the road to the lake in the rock is a cave in which traces of the ancient parking of people of the 5th-10th centuries AD were discovered. Now many bats live there, and sometimes, in bad weather, shepherds with flocks of sheep take refuge.
The Putorana Plateau is a mountain range located in the northwest of the Central Siberian Plateau. In the north and west, the plateau ends with a steep ledge (800 or more meters), while the southern and eastern parts are characterized by gentle slopes. The maximum height of the plateau is 1701 m, among the highest peaks are Mount Kamen (1701 m), Holokit (1542 m), Kotuyskaya (1510 m). In the north, the Putorana plateau borders on the Taimyr Peninsula. The name Putorana translated from Evenki means "lakes with steep banks." The area of the plateau is 250 thousand square kilometers, which is comparable with the entire UK. The Putoran State Nature Reserve, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, is located on the plateau.
The Ruskeala Mountain Park is a tourist complex located in the Sortavala region of the Republic of Karelia, next to the village of Ruskeala. The main object of the complex is a former marble quarry filled with groundwater. The quarries discovered by Pastor Alopeus began to be developed at the beginning of the reign of Catherine II. The first developments were led by Captain Kozhin, who was advised by Italian experts. Today, the length of the quarry from north to south is 460 meters, width - up to 100 meters. The distance from the highest point of the pit to its bottom is over 50 meters. The transparency of the water reaches 15-18 meters. Ruskeala marble is used in the construction of the most beautiful and significant buildings of St. Petersburg, its palace suburbs. They faced St. Isaac's Cathedral, laid the floors of the Kazan Cathedral, made the windowsills of the Hermitage, framed the windows of the Marble Palace and the facade of the Mikhailovsky Castle, as well as the underground halls of the Primorskaya and Ladoga metro stations in St. Petersburg.
