The waterways: Volga-Baltic Canal

< Sheksna River | Waterways Index | Lake Onega >

This 365km Volga-Baltic Canal connects Lake Onega with the Rybinsk Reservoir and includes several natural waterways such as the Sheksna River (see previous page). It has seven locks and three hydroelectric power stations. We arrived at the Canal in the early morning and travelled north towards Lake Onega.
