There is a place in the Murmansk region that is considered the most beautiful natural area and at the same time a sacred place. We are talking about lake seydozero. It is located in the center of the Lovozero mountain range, near the Sami village of seydozero. To get to it through the arteries of the rivers or through the pass Almario.
Seydozero is sometimes called polar Shambhala. The name was not born by chance. Scientists argue around the origin of this reservoir: some insist on the version that the lake was formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. Others suggest that it has an artificial origin, and at the bottom there are voids that lead to the second bottom. Fans of all the mysterious and paranormal could not help but notice this theory, and suggested that these tunnels were used by representatives of a highly developed civilization who lived on the Kola Peninsula. It is not for nothing that seydozero is also considered one of the possible centers of the mysterious civilization of Hyperborea (the Northern analogue of Atlantis).
It is Located at an altitude of 189 meters above sea level. It stretches among the tundra for 8 kilometers, with a width of 1.5 to 2.5 kilometers. From the West it flows into the mountain river Almario, in the East flows Satyavrat (Coils) and flows to lake Lovozero.
