The Prusovskoe Lake is called Our Baikal by the locals - for the purity of its water.

Monakhovo stands on the coast of the Chivyrkuysky Bay washing the Svyatoy Nos Peninsula, almost at the very entrance to the peninsula. The name of the village speaks for itself - once there was a monastery here.

One of the brightest features of the Seliger Lake is a huge number of islands per a relatively small area of water.

The largest island is Khachin.
