Observation Point, Samara

(4.6/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Perhaps one of the best places for photo! Highly recommend a visit there with an experienced guide. In this case, not only get great images, but also learn many interesting things about the history of these places, since the ice age! Everything would be fine, but would like a café, any souvenirs. No problem... Even coffee drink had no place. Very sorry for. .. Nature on 5, crappy infrastructure. .. The benefit was pure ...

  • A great place to come in any time and enjoy the Volga. There is a where dine with canvas and paints, is where sit together or by the company.
