Lake Sasyk-Sivash in Yalta
Lake Sasyk-Sivash can be fun for tourists once for three reasons. The first is the largest lake in the Crimea and one of the most picturesque. In good weather, in its waters you can see a beautiful pink hue, which was formed due to the large concentration of sea salt and chemical elements allocated to particular algae. Therefore, tourists come here often to see and photograph a wonderful landscape is fantastic. However, it is fair to say that to get beautiful photos with a pink tinge only when the weather is nice bright and cloudy it turns gray.
Another reason is in the lake you can swim. It is so salty that it is impossible to sink, and with a shallow depth (it barely exceeds one meter) it is very well heated and you can swim in it in mid-may.
Finally, the third reason to come to the lake its curative black mud, officially considered therapeutic. The muds of Crimea is extremely powerful in its effects on the body. Composition is a complex complex, valuable for the body chemical and biological substances, including hormones, biogenic stimulators, and penicillinate vitamin-like substance. Under the influence of mud complicated processes are happening in all the systems of the human body, resulting in aktiviziruyutsya forces able to overcome the disease. And while specialists take a mud bath alone is not recommended, it is common to see tourists, smeared black as soot dirt. If you decide to try self-treatment local mud, at least read before this article,"Therapeutic muds of Crimea".
Unfortunately, the healing properties of the lake are under threat. The fact that their preservation depends on the salinity of the lake, and it's worth it to decrease as the healing properties can go. And the lake Sasyk-Sivash is divided into two parts thin bulk dike, and its Northern part is fresh. Once a dam to collapse, and fresh water from North lake will destroy all the miraculous power of mud.
