Starting at the Yuri Gagarin statue and extending for a long distance along the Volga embankment there is a promenade and park in which you are able to walk along side the sparkling Volga river. There is an upper promenade and a lower river walkway contained within the same park-like area.

Along this area there are several cafes, bars and restaurants that have great views of the river. Even though the weather was excellent while I was there, there were not a lot of people walking along the embankment while I was there. Some families down by the statue and a few people here and there in quiet conversation, but no mobs of people. That made the walk in this part of Saratov very peaceful and relaxing. It was very enjoyable to simply watch the water flow past and to see other people enjoying themselves and their lives.

Directions: At the water front, from the historic part of Saratov down to the Slovakia Hotel.
