Festival Baikal. The Magic of Water in the Moskvarium
December 1, 2019 17:19


The ENEA, Moscow, is hosting a festival dedicated to Baikal, the deepest lake on the planet. All comers are welcome for free.
The festival “Baikal. The Magic of Water” is running from November 9 to December 5, 2019.  It is timed to the date of December 5, 1996, when Lake Baikal was included in the World Natural Heritage List by the decision of UNESCO.
The festival will introduce you to the unique ecosystem of Lake Baikal. The main venue of the event is the first floor of the aquarium, which has been turned into a large-scale interactive zone with subject expositions and a stage.



The festival is named after the film “Baikal. The Magic of Water”, which is going on general release in December, 2019. On November 29, the visitors to Moskvarium, one of the partners of this international project, could see episodes from the film and the creative team of the filmmakers. For the film shooting, eight expeditions to Lake Baikal and six to other places on the planet were carried out. The viewers will see a journey full of adventures, dangers and amazing discoveries through the eyes of a baby seal, the most defenseless, but at the same time a brave inhabitant of Baikal waters. The Russian version is voiced by Konstantin Khabensky and Tutta Larsen.
