Volga District

Trip Planner Europe  /  Russia  /  Volga District
Encompassing the southeastern part of European Russia, the Volga District has developed around Europe's longest and largest river, aptly called "Mother Volga" and thought of as the lifeblood of the country. Hundreds of historical monuments are set against the picturesque landscape of the lush riverbanks carpeted with coniferous and deciduous woods, flowery meadows, and wheat fields. The best way to experience this enchanting river is from the decks of a river cruise ship. A summer vacation in the Volga District would not be complete without sunbathing on its sandy beaches or taking a dip in its cool waters. The region's ethnic diversity and fusion of cultures and historical eras create a charming urban landscape. The colorful churches of medieval monasteries topped with characteristic onion domes, red brick kremlin walls and towers, and stone cathedrals will take you back to the times of imperial Russia. For a look at more recent Russian history, visit monuments from the Soviet era, such as Stalin's Bunker or the Lenin House Museum.
