Cape Horn

“Devil’s Mouth”, “Ship Cemetery”, “Old Eater” – that is how Cape Horn was called for centuries by sailors and travelers. It is the southernmost point of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago. This is not just a point on the map, but a very unusual and legendary place.

Inscribed in the history of shipping and covered in legends
This place has the most terrible climate. The temperature ranges from -2 to +14, there is no warmer here. The main feature is the almost unchanging weather.

Lake Baikal

Numerous, sometimes the most unexpected and original legends of Lake Baikal testify to the enormous importance that the lake had in the life of people at all times. And not only in terms of hunting, fishing, or any other human activity.

The sacredness of this place is comparable to the riddles of Stonehenge or the Nazca Plateau. Even the winds here have their names and their legends. The most famous of these places of power are Olkhon and Cape Ryty.

Scientists suggest that the age of Lake Baikal is about 30 million years. The first man’s sites on its shores are 20–25 thousand years old. By human standards, this is only three weeks from the life of an eighty-year-old man. Continue reading
