The active rest in Listvyanka

Nearby is the Museum of Gemstones and Nerpinarium, on foot you can walk to the picnic zone in the pine forest and the Observatory. In the opposite direction is the Cross Pad with the Retro Museum in the open air, with the beautiful and bright St. Nicholas Church, and the Krestovka river, where earlier prospectors washed gold.

In fifteen minutes of driving from our house, near the source of Angara, there is Baikal Limnological Museum. Do you want to know everything about Baikal? You here! After you get tired of maps, reports and calculations, plenty see enough of the inhabitants of the lake, swimming in giant aquariums, you can make an imitation dive in a bathyscaphe to the bottom of the lake (plus lecture). At the exit, there is a nice arboretum as a bonus. And if you go further, then in 20 km from Listvyanka will be “Taltsy”, it’s the architectural and ethnographic museum in the open air. This is the real town from the ancient fairy tale: tower-rooms, homesteads, yurts and towers are designed to show what life was with our ancestors.

Water trips as a form of rest in Listvyanka
Every day from the pier of Listvyanka dozens of water trips are made, and barkers tear out voices, enticing tourists on board. Don’t refuse!
Walk by a large boat “Barguzin” with upper deck seems in retro-style as if returns in times of childhood, and a high-speed trip on “Rocket” can be combined with a walk through the settlement Bolshie Koty. Independent tourists hire a private boat that will go in any direction: it is necessary only to wish. Water excursions to Sandy Bay are organized (thanks to wonderful sandy beaches and warm water, where you can swim, it was called the Siberian Riviera) and excursions by boat to the Circum-Baikal railway (it is also possible sail to the ferry). The main thing – don’t forget warm clothes, it is possible to be chilled to bones in open water.
