Grand Tsimlyansk Reservoir
Tsimlyansk Sea, as proudly called the reservoirlocal residents, was artificially created in 1952, during the construction of the hydroelectric power station. Even before filling it with water, there was much controversy due to the fact that historical monuments such as the Sarkel fortress, which in ancient times belonged to the Khazars, and several Cossack villages and farms that historically were associated with Pugachev and Razin, entered the flooding zone.
In addition to historians, biologists were also worried, and, apparently, not for nothing: after the creation of the reservoir, the hydrological background of the Azov Sea deteriorated sharply.
On the territory occupied by Tsimlyanskoyereservoir, there are known reserves and reserves, the largest of which are "Rostov" and "Tsimlyansky." Employees of these reserves are actively engaged in environmental and scientific activities. Large-scale works are carried out to protect the soil, the status of rare flora and fauna is being studied. It is safe to say that the Tsimlyansk reservoir is not only a powerful symbol of human capabilities, but also an example of a rash and hasty decision that has negative consequences for nature.

Tsimlyansk reservoir is famous for its deciduousforests, supplemented by artificial planting of pine. In 2006, in this area, scientists and students of the Volgograd University found several natural lakes.
