  • One of the symbols of the city of Samara, often seen her image on souvenirs and magnets. Stella herself high enough and near suppresses its size, is a favorite destination of nearly all Samara weddings, as well as the main venue of the municipal summer celebrations. Stair descent to Volga frames this Stella. Stella may itself expresses a famous Razinski prow was dumped overboard Persian Princess.

  • For me this is one of the symbols of Samara, situated on the banks of the Volga River, looks good with recreational and tourist ships, I cannot judge what value it has for local residents but to me it seemed interesting.

  • Apparently, according to the plan authors, this should delight. And apparently admires. But not all! Of course, the historical intent is felt: rooks, set sail to the Volga River, vatažniki, and so on. But the incarnation? But for me-it; the idea ... Apparently, I am limited in perception and understanding.
