In the winter, for about five months from January to May, the lake is frozen, but the water is so clear that standing on the surface of the lake you can see what is happening at a depth of 40 meters. Amazing natural phenomenon that attracts photographers all over the world is going on here in March. Wind, temperature, frost and sun provoke the appearance of ice blocks. Transparent and shining turquoise pieces of broken ice look like shards of glass, rising into the sky.
