Beach lake Yantarnoe (Sinyavinskoe), Yantarny, Kaliningrad region

Lake Sinyavinskoye, also known as Yantarnoe Lake, is a freshwater reservoir that was formed on the site of the former Walter quarry for amber extraction. The extraction of amber in the quarry was carried out by an open method in the period from 1913 to 1972.

When the amber-bearing rocks in the quarry were worked out, the quarry was deemed unprofitable and closed, the quarry was filled with spring and groundwater, resulting in the formation of a pond (lake).

Lake Sinyavinskoe is located between the villages of Yantarny and Sinyavino, belonging to the municipality of Yantarny City District.

The pond lies at an altitude of 9 meters above the level of the Baltic Sea and its small south-western part belongs to the village of Yantarnoye.

The approach to the pond is mainly limited by sufficient steepness and thickets, however, from the village of Yantarny there is a small beach near the lake shore - "Sinyavinsky Lake beach" or "Yantarny Lake beach".

The beach is not stretched, but wide. There is sand on the beach, mixed with a small amount of medium-sized pebbles.

The water in the pond is clear, you can swim.
