  • I fell in love with at first sight Verhnevolzhskuju promenade. Not for nothing it is the highest among the cities quays standing on the Volga! In sunny weather you can see perfectly the town BOR, which is on the other side of the river and the forest, Woods, forests. In the foggy and cloudy weather, it seems that the Volga have no end and edges! Charmingly!

  • Be sure to take a stroll along the promenade. It offers stunning views of the Volga. Old city buildings also deserve attention.

  • I even find it difficult to assess how beautiful this place in the eyes of visitors, because Lower-home town and Quay-permanent place of walks. Beautiful both sides: one located where the building and the sidewalk near a slope, which offers an overview on the opposite shore. By Chkalov monument you see and arrow, and after going further along the quay-BUR cableway, rowing canal. On the waterfront you'll find museums, restaurants, here goes one side building of the Polytechnic, pl. Hay-springboard. Quay is direct (perhaps this is the only minus), and if the above is too crowded, you can walk on the 2-nd and 3-rd even circles. Here I love to visit most: dog kennels usually walk here. There are already tracks sometimes go on the slopes and generally more tucked away. Not far from the Chkalovskoj stairs, where was the concert summer playground you can now see some intriguing architectural objects: pointers, original benches-the results of the youth contest. Here you can also go skiing in the winter.
