Samara Travel Guide: 48 reviews and 89 photos

The welcoming neighbourhood of Samara is always ready to attract you and offer a pleasant experience od rest, relaxation and enjoyment :)
One of the best and easiest trips you can have within a couple of hours and for reasonable price is going to the other bank of the Volga (Samara is on the left bank) by boat (there are all kinds of them, from very tiny and funny ones to extremely large and gorgeous).

The Volga river, the embankment, the beach, the green, he waters... It will all capture your heart within the first two seconds!

Samara is my native city and I actually love it very much. It may have lots of dust and garbage in the streets, architecture not always well designed, bad roads and unhealthy street markets but there are places there which are extremely beautiful and just as impressive as many famous tourist sites and they do mean a lot to me.

    I have been researching this area and Tol'yatti. It looks interesting and has so much history in the region. Maybe someday we could travel to here.

    Streets and other cities in the U.S. are just the same so don't worry I think we will love to see your beautiful native city.

    I just had a very brief glimpse of Samara while travelling on the Volga, but would really like to come back one day

    I like that remark on your Samara page. Beauty is not always obvious but it surrounds us wherever we may be.
