Russian River

Russian River

Total in our country occur approximately 2.5 million rivers. Many Russian rivers are very small (the channel length is less than 100 km), but among them there are real giants.

Yenisei

Yenisei is one of the largest rivers in the world, and its swimming pool is one of the largest not only in Russia but also worldwide.

The name of the Siberian rivers to the Evenki language soundsas "Jonas" and means "big water". Cossacks during the development of Siberia just altered it a beautiful word to a more convenient manner. So there is a new river with the sonorous name of the Yenisei. River Source - Lake Kara-Balyk at the top Sayan.

The depths of the Yenisei allow seagoing vesselsclimb for almost an entire 1,000 kilometers upstream. The maximum depth is 70 meters. In his mouth the river is so wide (up to 75 km), that during the trip to the coast of passage she simply can not see.
