    BAIKAL
    The highlight of the trip to Siberia is certainly the lake Baikal. The nearest site easily accessible for tourists is Listvyanka village on the shore of the lake. It is one hour drive from Irkutsk along the Angara River across the Siberian taiga-forest. Listvyanka is stretching along the shore of the lake for 3 km. From Listvyanka port begin all cruises, boat ridings, far-distance sea and river transfers, excursions on the old Trans-Siberian railroad. The left shore of Baikal, where Listvyanka is located, is a mountainous one and hardly appropriate for tourists` facilities. The right shore line counts numerous campings along the old Trans-Sib. The old Trans-Siberian is one of the main features of Baikal, now it is a railroad siding.
