Vacation on the Asafov Islands

Work on the Gorky Reservoir began in 1948, and was completed almost ten years later. The appearance of this artificial lake had an effect many things, including the local climate, flora and fauna. It changed the species composition of fish and the speed of the Volga River’s flow. Areas that were once barren and void of life became covered in green. Nowadays one of the reservoir’s most popular places is the Asafovy Islands. This is a place where fishermen and tourists alike love to set up camp and the site of large touristic festivals.
