"Belarusian Maldives": a description of the lakes where they are and how to get there
"Belarusian Maldives" has recently becomeattract lovers to relax on the shores of the amazing beauty of blue lakes. In the absence of an official permission to rest in local places and developed tourist routes, many extreme people, divers, fishermen and just hunters take pictures and interestingly spend their leisure time paving their way through the Belarusian expanses.
Roads calling us
Most often, interest in local places arises after viewing photographs, as well as exciting stories of acquaintances, enthusiastically sharing the impressions left by the Belarusian Maldives.
How to get to the enchanting lakes, in factwhich are worked out by careers, each traveler decides himself. A well-designed plan for implementing the plan is already part of the journey. If you go by car from Minsk towards Brest, then after Baranovichi you should turn to the right - to Slonim. Having passed this settlement and the next after it, Zelva, it is necessary to go around the city of Volkovysk from the east and move north to the settlement of Krasnoselsky. The simplest solution to this issue is to use the card.
The appearance of blue "pearls"
In the recent past, in the Volkovysk district of the Grodno region, near the village of Krasnoselsky, the production of natural minerals was carried out. To get in these places the chalk became about a century ago.
It is the combination of water with limestone suspensionsleads to the formation of such amazingly beautiful shades. This is what attracts tourists to the Belarusian Maldives. After the end of the industrial work career filled with water, the color of which is striking, especially in the spring and summer. Lakes are staggering with a variety of bizarre shapes. They occupy a territory that exceeds the area of three hundred football fields. In order to fully experience the charm of these "pearls", it is desirable to visit at least a few reservoirs.
"Wild" tourists are thrilled with the opportunityswim in the light emerald waters off the coast, covered with young pine trees. The peculiarity of these lakes is not just an amazing shade of water, but also a color variety: from pale blue, azure to acid green.
Lovers of extreme travel are not scaredsteepness of the coastline, complicating the descent. They are not bothered by pretty cool water, which does not have enough time to warm up during the day. Special concerns of experts are caused not by properties enriched with lime water, but by uneven bottom and extremely steep banks, often threatening with landslides. People who do not know how to swim should not leave the shore for more than half a meter, since the bottom is often the same precipitous. In addition, a lot of signs with warnings about the danger and prohibition of bathing are dotted with access roads.
Surrealism and a mixture of colors
A special charm to these places is given not only bythe mysterious color of the lakes, uncharacteristic for the Belarusian nature, but the fact that from afar the water seems opaque and matte. But close to the thickness of the water you can distinguish pebbles and boulders, reminiscent of meteorites. In addition, a walk along the foggy coast in August allows you to see surrealistic pictures. Standing on a steep bank, you begin to feel at the physical level how a fog cloud spreads around.
This is how the Belarusian hearts win the heartsMaldives, where there are white sandy beaches, very similar to the southern, and unrealistically steep cliffs, similar to the canyons of North America, and vegetation, growing in a temperate climate.
Regret comes from a certainshort duration of the observed phenomenon. The soon disappearance of such an amazing color of water is caused by the gradual depletion of the surface chalk reserves, which dissolves in it. This will lead to the fact that the wonderful Belarusian Maldives in a rather short time can turn into discreet lakes that will not stand out against the others.
In addition, non-compliance with the rules of conduct onnature, regulating the emission of garbage and the development of fires, as well as safety rules, leads to a deterioration in the local environment and the human victims. The decision, which should be taken at the governmental level, could radically change the situation for the better. Do not forget that the building of a quality tourism infrastructure can earn not only enterprising people, but the state as a whole.
The Belarusian Maldives today are able to inspire and please with their splendor, but tomorrow may be too late.
