On September 14, 1935, a decision was made in the USSR to start construction of the Rybinsk Reservoir. During the construction, the town of Mologa was evacuated and engulfed by water.
The evacuation started in 1937 and lasted for 4 years. In the 1930's there were over 900 buildings in Mologa, the population was around 7,000 people.
