Samara: Local Pecularities
April 25, 2018 11:57


 There is a metro in Samara: one branch, nine stations, eleven and a half kilometers. The decorations of the stations are made in late Soviet style. The metro does not yet have an important transport value: the area covered by it is too small. The stations are located not in the city centre, but in the industrial zone, so visitors of the city may as well not see them at all.

It is best to buy the legendary Zhigulevskoe beer in the beer garden near the factory: the beverage sold here is the freshest.

Samara is a historically multi-confessional city. In addition to Orthodox churches, there is a Polish Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a Lutheran Church of St. George, a cathedral mosque, a choral synagogue and the Old Believers’ cathedrals of three different sects.

There is a multi-figure monument to Chapayev not far from Strukovsky garden, on Chapaeva Square adored by the city’s residents: the monument is the exact twin of the monument standing in St. Petersburg in a much less favorable place, far from the centre, on the territory of the Military Academy of Communications. The Chapaev monument in Samara is the original one, its copy was made for Saint Petersburg. Both monuments are subject to vandalism - hooligans like to steal the sword of Chapaev most often.
