The lake of Naroch arose some milleniums ago, when the last glacier was receding from the land. On a way of the glacier to North there was Svientsianskaya ridge. The water from dissolution ice formed huge water space. And later, when water level was falling, some separate lakes was formed - Naroch group of lakes.
Naroch is a rarely clean lake. It is possible to keep its cleanliness and clarity due to variety of factors. Naroch is a weakly flowing reservoirs. Water comes there from the lake of Miastro through the short channel of Skema. Besides 17 streams fall into Naroch.

Besides its area (80 sq. km), depth (24 m) and gaunt (13 km) in a direction of prevailing winds, that creates conditions for intensive hashing of water, have great importance for clarification of the lake.
There are 22 kindes of fishes in Naroch. The biggest is a pike. The local inhabitants say, that exemplars by the weight of 20 kg occur sometimes.
Naroch forests, as well as the lakes, are unique. The undersized Karelian birch with magnificent, freakish crown attracts especial note. Mostly it occurs on west shore of Naroch.
Once the Karelian birch grew in the wild forests of Karelia in quantities. However marauding extermination resulted in that it rarely can be met in Karelia, Belarus and the Baltic countries
