The largest lake in Russia, and the second largest lake in the world by volume behind the Caspian Sea, is lake Baikal. This is also the world’s deepest lake in addition to being the world’s oldest lake. It is 5,387 feet deep at it’s deepest point and contains 20% of the world’s fresh surface water.
Lake Baikal is considered not only Russia’s biggest lake but also the largest lake in Eurasia. It is 1,620 meters deep, in fact, ”Baikal is so large that all of the rivers on earth combined would take an entire year to fill it.”
Lake Baikal is the largest lake in Russia, and the largest freshwater lake in the world. Until the vast depletion of the Aral Sea, the Aral Sea was actually much larger – and before the breakup of the Soviet Union, it was located in Russia.
Actually the Aral Sea was never in Russia, even during Soviet Union days. It was in Kazakh and Uzbek SSRs, today’s Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
