  • I don't care for football and that Samara takes WORLD CUP 2018, but not to evaluate the benefits of this moment cannot be finally resulted in the order of the stele, crying like what it turned and authorities have been spitting until the World Cup not happened, and so would and forget about it forever . The location is excellent, beautiful views, and even a fountain set, now simply soul rejoices, especially since it is one of the iconic places in my favorite city and what memories I have youthful with rook))

  • The Rook since my youth was much interesting: here stood the young musicians who met Nonconformists-all in all, it was great. It is true, did not escape her party and vandals-last five years one of the main symbols of the Samara looked very unattractive (But-yay!-Samara became the city that will host the Football Championship that year, and the rook (unsurprisingly) being at the top of the local tourist facilities. Accordingly, its updated, restored and installed at the foot of the fountain. The view from here zdorovskij, the pictures turn out great. So to all those who for the first time in Samara-welcome to "the Rook", this symbolic place definitely deserves attention.
