Scientists have a lot of versions of their origin, some argue that the balls have the natural origin and formed by water, wind and time.

One of this legends I would like to share with you – these balls were football balls for ancient Gods and giants, which lived at that territory before the appearance of humanity. What do you like to believe in? Champ is not only place where people find such balls, also they were found in New Zealand, Mexico and North Europe and usually the balls were located in places where people never lived – uninhabited islands, deep jungle or lost places of civilizations.

Let’s find out it together. The purpose of these stone statues is still a mystery to historians and archaeologists. According to one version, dolmens served as a burial place for the nobility. And local legends say that thousands of years ago the giants living here, built houses for their neighbors, the Lilliputians, in which they could hide from the raging elements. The dolmens have different forms – triangular, square, trapezoidal or round and all of them united by same round hole, which considered as the portal to another world. According to many scientists, these constructions are served as funeral structures, when a sage felt the approach of death, he went to dolmen and there met the end of his life.

Some local people have their own opinions about them, dolmens used by people who wanted to meditate, shared some information with deads and to get the answer for important questions from the another world. Also people believe that when human died, his soul couldn’t leave the dolmen any more, that’s why they respect the stone constructions and protect them, they are sure that dolmens are place of knowledge, power and energy.

#3. The Acidic lake of Kamchatka.

I have written a lots about Kamchatka, the territory of strong people and today I would like to share with you one more attraction, located there – the turquoise and unreally beautiful lake in the crater of volkano. The volkano is active, it erupted last time in 1952 and in that time the lake was appeared.

The main feature of Troitskoye Lake is the bright turquoise color of the water. The unusual color of the lake is due to the fact that the smallest particles of sulfur float in the water, which rise from the depths of the volcano. The amount of sulfur particles also changes the color of the water, for example, a few years ago the water was emerald green, then azure gray, now it is bright turquoise. An interesting fact is that the unusual color of the water is visible from a distance, the closer you get to the lake, the more turbid the water becomes.

The water of this lake is not used for swimming because of the huge concentration of sulfuric acid, the lake doesn’t froze even in winter season with severe frosts, temperature of water is 25-40 degrees but also can be 70 degrees. Crater Lake is one of the most acidic volcanic lakes in the world. However, this doesn’t scare travelers, who arrive at volcano to watch existing and breathtaking view of the lake. You can stand on the black beach, admire the poisonous emerald-colored surf, look at the «genies» that rise on the surface of the lake. But you cannot stay in this abode of underground spirits for a long time. The wind will blow you away, causing you to cough.

In conclusion…
