Travelling in the Volga Region
February 24, 2019 11:41


The Volga region is surprisingly rich in all sorts of wonders and miracles: just take Udmurtia alone - the birthplace of pelmeni, Kalashnikov assault rifle and composer Tchaikovsky. The “golden Khokhloma” of Nizhny Novgorod Oblast, “Samarskaya Luka” national park, the city of cars - Tolyatti, the industrial giant Naberezhnye Chelny, and the famous Volga Bulgaria - the cities of Elabuga and Bulgar.

River Cruises

The main tourist “feature” of the Volga region is, of course, cruises along the largest river in Europe: during these you can enjoy magnificent landscapes on board a ship and take a closer look at the culture and history of the cities on the Volga River, admire the Kazan Kremlin and the beautiful Kul-Sharif mosque, stroll through the ancient Saratov and see many more attractions that are definitely worth attention.

National Cuisine

A curious gourmet tourist will be interested in a visit to Bashkortostan, a hospitable republic famous for its honey and koumiss. When you get to Ufa, be sure to try the dishes of national cuisine - they cook really yummy things! At the first opportunity, take a look at Perm that hasrecently been declared the cultural capital of Russia; or go to Nizhny Novgorod that has long been called the third capital of our country.

Summer Time

It is better to have rest in the Volga region in summer, when you can swim, go fishing, go to the forest to pick berries, go on an excursion cruise along the Volga and wander through the streets of hospitable cities without fear of heavy rain or piercing winds.

Winter Time

However, even in winter, the picturesque region won’t leave anyone disappointed: fairs, folk festivals, craftsmen’s exhibitions, folk festivals will be organized everywhere: for example, on the eve of the New Year, they have a tremendous time.

Ski Resorts

An additional bonus is presented by excellent opportunities for winter sports: for example, in the Kazan ski resorts (in the vicinity of the city) or Leninskie Gorki (in the centre of Ulyanovsk) offer equipped trails to guests with any level of training.
