The geography of the Volga region

Strictly speaking, the Volga region is a territory adjacent to the Volga River, united as a single economical, geographical and cultural whole.

The region includes a considerable number of oblasts and republics of our country: Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Ivanovo and Nizhny Novgorod oblasts, the Republic of Chuvashia with its capital in Cheboksary; Ulyanovsk, Penza, Samara oblasts and the Republic of Tatarstan with the capital of Kazan; Saratov, Volgograd and Astrakhan oblasts, as well as the Republic of Kalmykiawith its centre in Elista.

Attractions

The Volga region can offer tourists almost all kinds of recreation, except, perhaps, a jeep safari on the sand dunes. The fans of ecotourism and those who simply want to admire the nature will be happy to see the Volga landscapes praised by poets: the free flow of a mighty river, picturesque green islands, emerald banks with birch groves and oak trees as if painted by a master’s brush; after another turn of the road you will suddenly see a small church with a stately bell tower and golden “stars” on cobalt domes.

The fans of light excursions will be offered to visit the most attractive Russian museums (this is no exaggeration): the Mouse Museum and the Museum of Valenock (Felt Boots), the Vodka Museum (an indispensable Russian souvenir), as well as the Watermelon Museum.

More serious tourists can attend beautiful art galleries and house museums of famous artists, excavations of ancient sites, real castles, ancient apartment buildings, stock exchanges, markets and residential quarters, as well as the most beautiful cathedrals and churches - surprisingly diverse, exquisite and magnificent.

You can touch the eternity in numerous functioning monasteries: to worship the shrines, listen to the choirs singing, pray for your loved ones.
