The Lake Baikal is one of the most gorgeous lakes in the world, especially in winter.  It freezes around the 1st of January and for a period of about five months it’s covered with ice. The beauty of the frozen lake attracts many tourists and during the winter season and you can go on a tour if you’re in Siberia. It’s safe to drive a car over the ice when the thickness is not less than 30 cm.
