Railway Tourism In Samara

Railway tourism development was decided in Samara.

      Rosturizm and RZD (Russian Railways) will develop railway tourism in Samara Oblast. According to the deputy head of the Federal Agency for Tourism Dmitry Amunts, first of all it is a matter of working with children, organization of children's tours, and development of cultural and educational tourism.

      Tourist trains began running from Samara to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Penza and other cities since the beginning of 2013. The tour price includes costs of the way, meals and excursions through the cities that passengers visit during their trip. The workgroup, which was established in the Federal Tourism Agency to implement in the region the railway tourism development project, provides multiple growths in the number of such trains and geographic extension of their routes.

      Russian Railways is the second largest network in the world with 85,200 km of track – 43,100 km of which are electrified. It carries over 0.95 billion passengers and 1.2 billion tonnes of freight annually across 11 time zones.

      Samara is the sixth largest city in Russia and the administrative center of Samara Oblast. It is situated in the southeastern part of European Russia at the confluence of the Volga and Samara Rivers on the east bank of the Volga. The life of Samara's citizens has always been intrinsically linked to the Volga River, which has not only served as the main commercial thoroughfare of Russia throughout several centuries, but also has great visual appeal. Samara's river-front is one of the favorite recreation places for local citizens and tourists. After the Soviet novelist Vasily Aksyonov visited Samara, he remarked: "I am not sure where in the West one can find such a long and beautiful embankment. Possibly only around Lake Geneva".
