Place of power
Siberia is rich in mystical stories and legends. There is a place for everything – from the bottomless lakes, which are called sacred, to the sky-high mountains that hide the secrets of the universe. The most ordinary Siberian village of Okunevo has turned into a mysterious place of power. According to legend, there is an ancient temple of an Indian god underground, and the lakes are filled with “dead water” and “water of life”. People here believe that if you take a dip in all five lakes of the Okunevo village, you can be healed of diseases of the soul and body. But who knows what magical waters hide in themselves?
