The hotel foundation
The hotel “Krestovaya Pad” was founded in 2005 in the settlement of Listvyanka and is considered one of the most picturesque and well-appointed places for recreation. A large number of guests can be accommodated here with cooking to satisfy the daintiest tooth and the ceremonial welcome to the hotel will be long remembered.
You may wonder what the hotel’s name means. “The Krestovaya Pad” or the Cross-like Dell takes its name after the place where the hotel is located in the dell of the taiga river Krestovka flowing out of the dell’s gorge taking its waters to holy lake Baikal. As soon as the lake’s ice breaks in the spring the species of grayling fish found only in Baikal rushes up the river for spawning. After spawning the grayling returns to the lake. Only the fish with enough oil content stay in the river where the ambient is ideal.
