Lake Brosno is a lake situated in the European part of Russia, in the Tver region, near the town of Andreapol. It is the place where the Brosno dragon is supposed to live. The lake's depth is about 43 meters (140 feet) at its deepest point, and it has a sunken church on the western part of it. Strangely, the lake carries burbot and perch, two species of saltwater fish.
