  • There are in the city-hero Volgograd remarkable monument-fire-rescue boat — "Dampener". The boat was launched in the year 1903. And nothing that it's small, but passed two wars — civil war and Stalingrad. During the battle of Stalingrad "Dampener" worked on the ferries and under fire of the enemy boat was giving weapons and food to the troops, one fires on other vessels and ashore, evacuated the wounded, and residents on the other Bank of the Volga. August 8, 1942 year "Dampener" been putting out fire arising from a massive bombing enemy railway station Sarepta. After this job in hull was found approximately 3.5 thousand holes. In mid-October 1942 year "Dampener" sank. The ship rose in the year 1974. And in 1977, during the student Festival Youth USSR and GDR, participants work on a «Gasitele», (including myself) to restore it. The Memorial is a historic monument. The monument consists of a composition: centered on which, installed boat "Dampener". Also installed 13-meter stele. Inscriptions on Stela: "Slava rechnikam and firefighter Volga basin — heroes of the civil war, the defenders Red Tsaritsyno" and "Never the Soviet people will not forget the brave sons of the Volga River, glorified himself in the battle of Stalingrad". The monument is situated on the Bank of the Volga River, a panorama of Stalingrad.

  • Oh how nice it would be to find out why just this gunboat was raised here on the base. What have to do with the defense of Stalingrad and securing replenishment across the Volga River is of course, but are allowable assumptions, not facts. A legible sign would be helpful here, right?

  • In Volgograd is likely impossible just idle walks here every piece of land and water is literally silent screams and makes you wonder about the main thing. Boat party of Stalingrad, was set on the seafront in honour of the 50-anniversary of the great victory.
