Озеро замечательное и место для отдыха прекрасное, огорчает лишь то, что оно безжалостно эксплуатируется местным населением и не только и никто не думает о том, как его сберечь и сохранить.The Lake is a wonderful place for rest and perfect, the only thing that saddens it ruthlessly exploited the local population and not only and no one thinks about how his save and save.show original
Селигер не описать в отзыве, его стоит и нужно увидеть! Не стоит смотреть Осташков, идите сразу на причал и берите обзорную экскурсию.Seliger is not described in the recall, it is worth to be seen! Not worth watching Ostashkov, go immediately to the pier and take a sightseeing tour.show original
