They call it the unusual Maldives Lake of Novosibirsk

The lake is located near the Russian city of Novosibirsk and is gaining popularity as an Instagram destination for users who want to take a beach photo.

Irina, who took pictures of the lake last month, tells Mashable that while she was there, she didn't smell any odors, but she wouldn't even consider entering the water. "The whole Mendelian table is inside," she says.

The Siberian Generation Company, which owns the lake, claims that it is technically "non-toxic." The company, however, warns that people should not swim inside.
