Lake Goluboe is in the Caucasus Mountains in southern Russia. The level of hydrogen sulphide in the water makes it a bright blue, but also gives it a smell of rotten eggs. Its water is a bracing nine degrees Celsius and experts believe there are archaeological artefacts preserved in its depths. It’s also possible that the largest cave system in the world might be hiding down there. Strange and beautiful.
