November 6, 1952 in the main square of the city the Palace of Culture of the Volkhov Aluminum Plant was inaugurated. Its formation and flourishing are inextricably linked with the first-born of the country's aluminum industry. Forty-five years of its history, it was factory, DC worked closely with the workers of the shops. The leaders of the creative teams oversaw different production processes, found talented people, invited them to classes, and created new collectives. Plant workers brought their children to the Palace of Culture. It was a spiritual center, where everyone, from small to large, found an occupation of interests and spent their free time with profit.
