This is an indispensable tool for Western tourists who plan to visit the Lake Baikal area. Although some of the Russian maps which this reviewer has acquired are of similar quality their usefulness is greatly mitigated by being solely in Russian. As Lake Baikal Map has been published primarily for the German speaking market, some of the English descriptions are curious but it is produced on high quality paper.
