Kazan, the most dramatic natural area of the whole Danube, was the most dangerous one for navigation during the old regime, before the construction of the dam. Difficult navigation conditions in Kazan were at the time regulated by a specific river traffic management and control system. A system of six signal stations on the both sides of the Danube was used as a signal to captains that they could freely pass or wait for the ship coming from the opposite direction.The system of the so called “balloon” stations is today regarded as monumental and infrastructural heritage and it is protected by the Institute for Preservation of Cultural Heritage.
