Netherlands RR - Group 63 - Russia

Two weeks ago, I received this beautiful card from Russia . It was send by kelpie via the Netherlands RR - Group 63. It shows the Baikal Lake, which is an UNESCO site. A great and original card from this country!

Situated in south-east Siberia, the 3.15-million-ha Lake Baikal is the oldest (25 million years) and deepest (1,700 m) lake in the world. It contains 20% of the world's total unfrozen freshwater reserve. Known as the 'Galapagos of Russia', its age and isolation have produced one of the world's richest and most unusual freshwater faunas, which is of exceptional value to evolutionary science.
