The Shatsk Lakes

Lake legend

Recommended for those who like to recreate in picturesque places

…The prince was in campaign. He left his town and his only daughter. The dark night descended. Enemies attacked the town. In despair the girl asked heaven for mercy. All of a sudden the town vanished and on its place a huge water emerged, clean as a girl’s tear. Only not salty. True or not, but a marvelous lake still exists there. Its deep is full with fish, and its water is clean. Greatgrandmothers of modern girls believed that water could turn youth back. There is no equal to that lake. Quite near other lakes appeared, not so deep but as much picturesque.
