Description of the resting place
During the construction of the Kiev hydroelectric power station, the main channel of the Dnieper River was blocked, and the mighty waters of the main artery of Ukraine were directed along a bypass canal. Despite the fact that this is an artificial structure, now the canal looks like a real river, with picturesque banks and clear water. Not all motor ships and yachts can enter the canal from behind the road bridge near the hydroelectric power station, but those who can find themselves in an extremely interesting water area.
