  • The embankment of the Volga River is navrnoe, what we remember and through 10 years after our trip! You can simply take a walk to admire the beauty of the scenery, you can go here for a morning jog and the evening promenade. Quay (both upper and lower) well-organized, has bikeways. Hike, comrades, here!
