Svetloe Lake in Siberia is commonly known as real-life Swan Lake, you will find the whole lake full of beautiful swans if you come here in February. These swans regard the lake as their home in winter, it’s really surprising that swans usually prefer to fly away to the south to spend the winter, but those swans fly to the cold Siberia, that’s because there are many hot springs around the Svetloe Lake. Swans prefer to stay here where the water temperature is between 5 and 6 Celsius although the surrounding air is under minus 40 Celsius.

Swans first appeared in the lake in 1967 and there were only 15 swans at that time, now the number has increased to 350 and it continues to show an upward tendency.
