Free Wi-Fi Appeared At Verkhniy Baskunchak Station

Free service to connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi is introduced for comfortable stay of passengers at the station Verkhniy Baskunchak  by the Directorate of Railway Stations.

      Moreover the free service for charging mobile devices became available and a kids’ play area is equipped for the youngest passengers at the station. Sanitary room is reconstructed,  plumbing equipment is updated at the station. A system of emergency call of employee on duty is installed for disabled passengers.

      Bogdinsko-Baskunchaksky Reserve is one of the youngest in Russia, it has existed since 1997. Even by the name you can guess the two main natural objects protected by the reserve – the Bolshoe Bogdo Mountain and the salt Baskunchak Lake. To be more precise, only a part of the lake belongs to the conservation area. Bogdinsko-Baskunchaksky area is the main and the largest cluster of the reserve. The Bolshoe Bogdo Mountain is one of the southernmost mountains of the Urals, the highest peak of the Caspian lowland. In order to get to the protected area, you must receive a pass (voucher). It can be issued directly at the cordon located next to the road leading from the village to the south, to the Bolshoe Bogdo Mountain. Organized groups of 15 persons have to apply in advance (no later than 7 days prior to arrival, by fax, to e-mail: and or by the telephone 3-63-13), the application containing the following data: day and time of the scheduled trip, the number of people in the group. For getting the voucher the tour group leader must have a passport and a list of the tour participants.

      Salt crystals stay on the skin after immersion in brine, therefore you need to wash them off. Shower cubicles near the lake are few, not too comfortable and not too attractive. If you do not want to take a shower in the plank shed, bring a lot of water with you. Anyway, you cannot do there without fresh water capacity. The locals are responsive, willing to talk about the village, show where to go, how to get to the nearest bathe. But you should not walk through the village at night - drunk young people are not too friendly. You cannot spend the night in a tent on the shore of the lake – it is a conservation area. You can stay in the village of Nizhny Baskunchak - in the “Bassol” hotel or “Baskunchak” health resort.
