Are the fresh water lakes of the Great Lakes
The 10 largest lakes in the world
Lakes are popular recreational areas and are the livelihoods of millions of people. Reason enough to take a look at the 10 largest lakes in the world.
10. Great Slave Lake
The Great Slave Lake in northwest Canada owes its German name to a translation error. Because the 28,568 km² large lake is not named after slaves, but after the Indian people of the Slavey, who used to live in the area around the lake, whose members used to be called “slaves”, which also means slave.
9. Lake Malawi
Lake Malawi, which extends over the territories of Mozambique, Malawi and Tanzania and is 29,600 km² in size and 579 km long, is called Nyassa or Nyasa or Niassa in the national languages of the neighboring states and is the third largest lake in Africa.

Around the shores of the lake in northwestern Canada, silver and uranium used to be mined and furs were traded. Today the 31,328 km² large and 373 km long lake mainly attracts adventurous tourists.
7. Lake Baikal
