In the late 1930s several towns on the river Volga were sacrificed for the sake of Industrialization — they were intentionally flooded behind new dams in order to create power stations. Recently various people – scientists, amateur archaeologists, divers along with local history experts and antiquarians tend to gather around the flooded towns and form a community of people who are really into it! The flooded zone doesn’t seem to be an abandoned area anymore.
