About lake Great Entropy
What I liked in the description of the Great lakes Entropy is the fact that the lake is salty and medicinal.

And sapropelic mud lakes Great Entropy not inferior mud from the resorts of Evpatoria, Saki, and Primorsky Krai in terms of therapeutic impact and therapeutic harakteristikam. Due to their low salinity treatment of them is very easy.
The lake is Great Shantropai pretty small; the average depth is about 3.5 meters. The water in the lake warms up quickly on hot days. The water is salty, soft and clean.
