Observation Point, Samara

(300+ reviews on the web)
Lookout Observation Deck
Admire the panoramic view of the mighty Volga as it flows through the Zhiguli Gates from Observation Point. Offering some of the best unobstructed views in the Samara region, the picturesque point is frequently visited by both tourists and locals, who often refer to it as Vertolyotka, or the Helipad. Spend time soaking in the scenery and don't forget to capture the landscape with your camera, paints, or sketching equipment. Close to the observation deck is a restaurant where you can taste some of the local specialties. Because it is a popular spot for wedding processions, the plateau can be somewhat crowded on the warm weekends, while it tends to be less busy on weekdays. Using our custom trip planner, Samara attractions like Observation Point can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
