Listvyanka village is the nearest point to Baikal. During your holiday you will have fascinating experience: take the cable car ride; visit the the Chersky stone, from which one of the best panoramic views of Lake Baikal opens; visit the ethnographic museum "Taltsy". The museum reveals the history of area colonization by Russians and will surprise you with traditions of the indigenous local people - the Buryats. In the Baikal museum you will observe the curious seals, find out how Baikal appeared, and what happens to it today.

Walks along the Baikal-Amur Railway, Peschanaya Bay, Bolshie Koty settlement occur daily. You can join anytime.


A trip to the island of Olkhon. The journey takes 5-6 hours, taking into account the ferry to the island. I recommend to start acquaintance with the island from the cliff Shamanka.
