Volga – Don Navigation Canal and MuseumThe idea of constructing a canal connecting Volga and Don, two mighty rivers in Western Russia, goes back to the Russian Emperor Peter the Great. However, due to various reasons his plans were abandoned. This waterway connects the Volga and Don rivers in their narrowest joining place; at a length of 101km it plays a vital part in cargo transportation, linking five Seas: the White, the Baltic, the Black, the Caspian and the Sea of Azov. We will visit the Volga side of the canal, situated in the suburbs of Volgograd. We will see the first lock and its gates, dominated by a beautiful arch. The Canal museum will reveal exciting facts about the building, history and work of the canal and its navigation.
