You have a little cruise boats sailing on the lake Baikal from Listvyanka. Would the boats go to the other side of the lake or just sail along the shore? Although from the map it seems that there is like 20 miles to the other shore of the lake, which would mean that the boats probably don't go that far.This is the question, just out of curiousity, as maybe one day I will be able to come to this beautiful part of Russia?

Ilona. On a photo a small tourist steamship. It goes near to coast, carry tourists within 1-3 hours. For tourists here there is also a boat with a glass bottom. At desire, it is possible to employ a boat for some days and to make cruise over Baikal. Near to Irkutsk there is a Polish village. There speak in the Polish language. Elena

What's the name of this Polish village? So is it mainly Polish people living in this particular village? Do they have a Polish school (I mean that they teach in Polish)? Ilona

And the steamship with the glass bottom - must be nice to sail on the one like that, especially on the deepest lake in the world :)

Ilona: Some people are afraid to float by such boat.
