Any walk through Samara sooner or later leads to the embankment of the Volga River.


The Kuibysheva Square in Samara is not just the main city square, but the largest square in Russia and the second largest square in Europe.


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.


A walk along the central streets of Frunze and Kuibysheva, Chapaevskaya and Lva Tolsogo is like going through the pages of a textbook on the history of architecture from the 19th century to the present day: Art Noveau, eclectic, Neo-Russian and Neo-Mauritanian styles, wooden houses and pompous Stalinist Empire style, a bit of pure constructivism.


The presence of a Catholic church in Samara can puzzle only a person who does not know the history of the country. The Volga region is one of the historical centres of Russian Catholicism.


The Cosmic Samara Museum impresses you at first sight - the place it takes among its surroundings is emphasized very successfully.


The first museum in the country created by fans and for fans is the Samara Football Museum.


Lives and creative works of many famous people of Russia are connected with Samara. The childhood and youth of the writer Aleksei Tolstoy passed in this city.


The exact date of foundation of Samara is unknown.


Sochi Arboretum is more than one hundred years old. In 1889 Sergey Khudekov, a nobleman born in Ryazan and a writer and a playwright of the capital city, a publisher of the Petersburgskaya newspaper, bought a plot of 140 acres of land in Dakhovskii Posad (Sochi), where he founded a subtropical park (48.5 acres) and a fruit garden (32.5 acres).


Sochi Arboretum is simply perfect for you to retreat from the city hustle and bustle, have a good rest and relax. A huge collection of rare subtropical plants from around the world is gathered on the vast area of the Arboretum.


The Skypark in the picturesque Akhshtyrskoe Gorge on the territory of the Sochi National Park has become the largest project in the history of commercial bungee jumping.


The territory of the Arboretum has a couple of cafes and numerous tents selling pies and drinks.


The suspension bridge is enclosed by railings and a grid, so it is safe to walk through it even with children. All attractions of Skypark operate under the supervision of the certified specialists of the A.J. Hackett company.


The authorities of Ingushetia launched new helicopter routes to the mountainous sights.


Matsesta is known as a separate area between Khosta and Sochi, but it is an administrative part of Khosta district. It has unusually beautiful views that mostly relate to the Sochi National Park and a very modest infrastructure.


The Friedland Gate is the only one of the seven surviving city gates of Koenigsberg and the youngest of all these gates.


Matsesta is a place of power, health and has a strong smell of hydrogen sulfide. This place has healing springs that have attracted people here since ancient times.


The Friedland Gate built in 1862; it was the last link in the defensive ring of Koenigsberg. They covered the road to Friedland, the modern Pravdinsk.


Nowadays the Royal Gate not only tells us about the emergence of Koenigsberg-Kaliningrad and its development at the crossroads, it is a museum with open exhibitions; solemn book presentations and wedding ceremonies are held there, and the Kaliningrad Consular Corps has chosen the Royal Gate as a venue for the annual celebration of the Diplomats Day.
