Seliger is a large system of lakes linked by effluents, has many small islands and is surrounded by forests, including pine woods with many berries and mushrooms.

Seliger is situated within a picturesque landscape of forests and hills. The lake is a protected nature reserve and is sometimes known as the "European Baikal" due to the diversity of its unique flora and fauna, similar to Lake Baikal.

Чистое озеро, прекрасный вид, много уютных и спокойных мест, обязательно арендуйте лодку и прокатитесь по озеру вокруг Ниловой Пустыни
Анна Гайдукова
Доехали из Москвы за 4 часа. Вода кристально чистая, воздух пахнет морем, приветливые жители города Осташков. Кушаем в кафе и едем дальше до нашей турбазы.

Наверное , надо ехать наверх, в Новгородскую область. Конечно, и так понравилось, вокруг Нило-столбенской пустыни, природа-мать! Но слишком туристично все-таки.
