Jacques-Yves Cousteau, seeing the Volga-Don, called it the eighth wonder of the world. In order to close the channel from storms, this place was chosen. The entrance to the canal from the side of the Volga is marked by a lighthouse and a monument to Lenin, also a front arch is installed at the site of the lock # 1.
