A city rich in cultural and architectural heritage, Samara sits at the confluence of the Volga and Samara Rivers, its backdrop the wooded Zhiguli Mountains. A major industrial and economic center, the city grew around a military outpost founded in 1586. The setting of several dramatic uprisings during the 17th and 18th centuries, Samara witnessed the violent outbreak of the Russian Civil War in 1918, when it became a stronghold for the growing White Army. Due to Samara's strategic industries, in the post-World War II period the Soviet government kept the city closed to foreign tourists. Today, Samara boasts a lively nightlife scene, with its picturesque riverfront luring both local and visiting pleasure seekers. With the Inspirock world travel planner, Samara and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
