Lake Vivi (Russian language: о́зеро Ви́ви) is a lake in Evenkia, Siberia, Russia. The area of the lake is 229 square kilometres (88 sq mi).[1]

The lake is located in a remote area and has no permanent settlements along its banks. It is famous as the geographical center of Russia. The spot is marked by a 7-metre monument erected in August 1992. Nearby is an even higher cross dedicated to St. Sergius of Radonezh.[2]

geography

Lake Vivi is located on the southern limit of the Putorana Massif, in the zone where it overlaps with the Syverma Plateau. It is a typical river lake, with the Vivi River, a tributary of the Lower Tunguska, flowing out of it from its southern end.[3] Lake Vivi is roughly stretching from north to south and while its length is ca. 86 kilometres (53 mi), its width does not exceed 5 kilometres (3.1 mi).[4]
