Baikal Lake's vessel graveyard

Baikal Lake’s vessel graveyard

A calm area on the Baikal lake, not far from a port of the same name, keeps a secret of the ships laid up. This place is called “the cemetery” among residents. The majority of ships rusting here are towboats and barges having served for delivering construction materials, soil, timber and fuel for the purposes of the construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline.
