It is called the “pearl of Belarus” or the “Belarusian Sea”. And this is not surprising, because the lake is not only the largest (79.6 km2), but also one of the most beautiful among the lakes of the country. The shallow depth of the lake helps to warm up the water, the gentle sandy shores overgrown with pine forests make this place the main resort of Belarus. There is all the necessary infrastructure for a comfortable stay in nature: ecological trails, tourist bases, hotels and sanatoriums. The lake and its surroundings are declared a national park, which includes 36 natural monuments of local and national significance.
