"Saratov" Saratov by bijo69

Saratov Travel Guide: 46 reviews and 150 photos

Visited Saratov twice, for a month in 1996 and a few days in 1998. Really loved it! Although the town has around 1 Million inhabitants, it seems more like a charming village with lots of old wooden houses remaining even in the centre.

    Hi Bijou, once more good Travel Tips and pics. Lets hope the "room mates" have moved out after the renovation took place last year? regards Martin

    Hi, Yes, Lenin is still here pointing the way with its index finger. You are welcome to see a new statue of Petr Stolipin. Next time I'll try to put this photo.
