Symposium Location

Symposium will take place in Altay (Barnaul and lake Teletskoye).

Barnaul  is a city and the administrative center of Altai Krai, Russia, located on the Ob River. Population: 612,091. It is the closest major city to the Altai Mountains to the south.

Lake Teletskoye ( literally: "Golden Lake") is the largest lake in the Altay Mountains and the Altai Republic, Russia, and has a depth of up to 325 meters. The lake transparency is high, with the visibility of the lake water ranging from six to fourteen meters. About 70 rivers and 150 temporary streams flow into the lake, the largest of them, Chulyshman River, supplying more than half of the lake's water. The lake is drained through a single outlet, the Biya River, which, after its confluence with the Katun River, forms one of Siberia's largest rivers, the Ob River. The lake is surrounded by mountains of 600-1,300 m in the northern part and about 1,700-2,400 m (5,600 - 7,900 ft) in the southern part. Lake Teletskoe is included into Altaisky Nature Reserve. That reserve along with the Katun Natural Reserve and the Ukok Plateau Nature Refuge were listed as one of UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites under the name "Golden Mountains of Altai".


Travel to the Lake Teletskoye for 1 day including a visit to Corbu waterfall is planned.

Data required for Russian visa application:

1) scanned copy of passport for traveling abroad with date of issue and date of expiry;
2) assumed arrival in Russia: from and till;
3) itinerary (in Russia);
4) family name, first name, middle name;
5) date of birth;
6) sex;
7) citizenship;
8) state of birth, place of birth;
