Every year, a multitude of tourists get to Trans Siberian Railways, the priced railway of Russia that cuts across two continents. The Russian railways will take you to a visit through Russia with a trip at the most famous tourist destination that is Lake Baikal. The Baikal lake is found halfway along the Trans-Siberian route and is taken into account to be the most visited place in Russia. Much of Lake Baikal is pristine with crystal clear and mineral free waters making it the cleanest lake in the whole world. Anyone who visits the lake has nothing to say but superlative words of adoration to this mind-blowing oldest and largest lake. Lake Baikal has 1500 species of plants and animals never to be seen anywhere else in the world.

Olkhon is the only populated region in Baikal and it is also the biggest island. The island boasts of picturesque landscapes, sandy beaches and coastal sand dunes making it a treasure worth on a regular basis to enjoy visiting the attractions while having the feel of nature away from civilization. The island is devoid of any cell phone networks, telephone lines and even electricity making it so remote from the outside world. Its source of electricity are generators making your stay comfortable, simple and enjoyable. If you want serenity and peace, Olkhon is the perfect place for you as it is free from stress and worry. The island of Olkhon is usually visited by tourists who prefer camping outdoors or spiritual gatherings.

With the rise of Baikal’s popularity among tourists, another area also became popular through its ship-building and ship-repairing yards, this area is Listvyanka. Listvyanka is where the Limnological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences is located, the institute focuses on the study of lakes and manmade reservoirs of Russia and Siberia and also the pristine waters of Lake Baikal. The village is pretty civilized with all the required amenities for the traveler. It may be a challenge to feast on the meals made from the fresh Baikal omul fish.

The Circum-Baikal Railway is an indication of the engineering and construction creativity of over 100 years ago. Because of its location, the landmark was supposedly a continuation of Trans-Siberian Railways and is useful to Russia. At present, the Circum-Baikal Railway is a peaceful route optimized by tourists who prefer to experience travelling along a still place. This railway was a big challenge for the Russian imperial government since the tunnels and bridges were created by human hands and not machines as we do in the current civilization.
