Description of the resting place
Vodnikov Island (54 hectares) is a historical area on the territory of Kiev near Zhukov Island. The islands were connected by a dam, along which a highway was laid. A workshop of the Kiev shipbuilding and ship repair plant was built on the island and its bay was turned into a convenient harbor for wintering the river fleet. Now there is a large sandy beach on Vodnikov Island, it is convenient to cook barbecue, fish and swim here.
In the 30s, for military purposes, a tunnel with a railway was laid through the island, but at the beginning of the war, the construction that had begun was mothballed and flooded, and in 1946. tubing and tunnel equipment were used in the construction of the Kiev metro, and in 1974. (after the launch of the Kanevskaya hydroelectric power station) was flooded again.
