Fortunately, written sources (one of the forms of display of a history), created in certain times and reached up to descendants, help them to illuminate the present and to think of the future.
The beginning of studying of Budakskiy lake (estuary of Shabolat) - a source of the basic medical factors of a resort, was necessary at the end of XIX century members of the Odessa scientific organization of the culture.
