Revealing the truth about the 1,600 tons of gold discovered at the bottom of Lake Baikal.
The 1,600 tons of gold from the Tsarist era have been discovered in Lake Baikal, which is renowned as the world’s deepest freshwater lake.
When it comes to the most beautiful and cleanest lake globally, Lake Baikal is often the first thought for many people. It is the largest freshwater lake in Europe and the deepest lake in the world. Many legends surround this particular lake, the most famous of which claims that 1,600 tons of gold are lying at the bottom of the lake, but nobody dares to salvage it.
The deepest part of Lake Baikal reaches 1,637 meters, making it recorded by the Guinness Book of Records as the deepest lake globally. Additionally, it is a large freshwater lake in Asia and Europe. If you stand by the lake and look out, you won’t be able to see the other shore, just like in the middle of the ocean.
During the First World War, Tsar Nicholas II accumulated wealth for many years. While soldiers were fighting on the front lines of Eastern Europe, the king himself enjoyed a life of luxury. Outraged by the reality, many Russians launched campaigns to establish the Soviet Union in February and October. On his way to Siberia, the Tsar took with him more than 20 treasure carts. According to preliminary calculations, there are more than 1,600 tons of gold and some extremely valuable treasures.
But in the later war, these treasures became a burden on him. Not wanting the wealth to fall into the hands of his opponents, the Tsar decided to throw it all into Lake Baikal. After the Tsar was captured and executed, the treasure and money he threw into Lake Baikal disappeared with him.
After so many years, times continue to change. Why hasn’t anyone come to Lake Baikal to salvage the gold?
