The sculptural composition “Peaceful Atom”, the symbol of Volgodonsk, is situated at the very centre of the new part of the town. The composition features heavy grapevines hanging from the stylized orbits of the atomic particles.
The composition idea is clear to everyone: the nuclear energy, “tamed” by a human being, should serve people, heat our homes, provide electricity for our plants and factories and energy for our ships, floating in the ocean. Atom is ought to help people to live, not to destroy the humankind.
Atom, twined by a grapevine, peaceful atom – is the symbol of Volgodonsk. The author of the composition is Y.V. Alexandrov.
