This is a guest post from Michal Kniec, A student from Canada.

As a Canadian I welcome the winter and everything that comes with it. I find it welcome to visit places not only during the season but experience the beauty within such scenery. When I came across the opportunity to visit Moscow during my Christmas break I knew I couldn’t turn it down.

Lake Baikal, Russia

Lake Baikal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a remarkable list of credits. The extraordinary body of water in south Siberia, between Irkutsk Oblast and the Buryat Republic, is 25 million years old and 1.7 km deep – no other lake comes close. Lake Baikal contains more than 20% of the planet’s unfrozen surface freshwater and over 1,000 genera of endemic flora and fauna. For a once-in-a-lifetime tour of Lake Baikal, most visitors start off in Moscow and fly to the city of Irkutsk.
