The Lezhninskoye Lake

The Lezhninskoye Lake located in the Pizhanka area looks strange owing to its nearly perfect round shape and high lakesides (up to 10 meters) that resemble a shell-hole. This is the deepest basin in the Kirov region Ц its depth is 36.6 meters. Water in the lake is clear. You can see the lake bed at the depth of several meters. The pike and roach, as well as crayfish are found in the lake.

The legend tells that the lake appeared about 400 years ago at the site of villages Lezhnino and Mokretsy that dipped below the surface in the presence of local residents and the village buildings and a chapel are now at the bottom of the lake. Maybe, that is why tourists fond of diving like the Lezhninskoye Lake so much.
