Sestra

Sestra

 

(also called Raiaioki), a river in Leningrad Oblast, RSFSR. The Sestra is 74 km long and drains an area of 393 sq km; it flows along the Karelian Isthmus. Until the early 18th century the Sestra emptied into the Gulf of Finland. The construction of a dam to supply the Sestroretsk Arms Factory resulted in the formation of the Sestroretsk Reservoir (Lake Raz-liv), with an area of 10.6 sq km and depths reaching 2 m; since then the Sestra has flowed into the reservoir. Lake Razliv is separated from the Gulf of Finland by a ridge of sand dunes; the surplus water is discharged into the Gulf of Finland through a channel 4.8 km long. From 1918 to 1940, the USSR-Finnish border ran along the Sestra.
