From backside postcard: "Blue lake - karstic pond located on 13th kilometer of road to Ritsa"
The Blue Lake formed by the foot of the Tskhyn Mountain at 100 meters above sea level. It is a karst well with exceptionally clear water that is a bright light blue in color. The water level in the lake is stable; excess water runs down the stones into Bzyb River.
