Lake Shaitan and floating islands.
One of the most unique and beautiful lakes in Russia – Lake Shaitan, located about 39 km from the city of Urzhum, Kirov Oblast. The lake has a karstic origin, depth up to 25 meters. The Lake Shaitan is fed by underground water. A unique phenomenon – drifting on the lake island, with growing bushes and small trees. The islands can support the weight of several people. Another unique feature of the Shaitan lake in the emissions of fountains and water columns. Columns are available in various heights (up to 10 m), the emissions are irregular. Locals say that the emissions are in the winter, leaving the rearing sticking up thick ice floes.

Near the lake used to be a large two-storey wooden house, which belonged to the owner of the forest – a major landowner and industrialist Mosolov. Since his serfs without the permission forest were cut down, Mosolov ordered the forester not to fine poachers with money, instead – bathing in Shaitan. The culprit is taken out on the boat and allowed to swim to shore. Tree cutting instantly stopped – people are terribly afraid of the lake.
