DUBNO, a village in Volkhov District. Population: 38. It is located 18 km away from Novaya Ladoga town, to which D. is subordinated administratively. It is located on the Staroladozhsky and Novoladozhsky Canals at the southern coast of Lake Ladoga. It has been known since the early 18th century as one of the settlements along the route of construction of the Ladoga bypass canal (see Ladoga Canals.) In 1724, D. was visited by Peter I. Till to the end of the 19th c., a small boat, on which the Emperor sailed from Novaya Ladoga to D., was kept there. On the Staroladozhsky Canal there is a stone lock with a floodgate, a waterworks monument of the 18th c. The half-ruined brick building of the church of Protection of the Virgin (1761-64, closed in 1939) has survived, with side-chapels of St. Nicholas and All Saints. Since the village is situated between channels, it is planned as streets and rows. Traditional houses are mixed with up-to-date summer cottages. Communication with neighboring communities is via the Novoladozhsky Canal.
