In every civilization since ancient times people tended to settle as close to the water, the base of living, as possible. And big rivers were some of the best places to make settlements which could further grow and develop into cities because of great possibilities for trade. This statement is quite correct concerning the Volga, a 3530 kilometers long river, one of the longest rivers in the world and the longest one in Europe. Thus many important Russian cities are located on it, of which four have population over 1.000.000: (down the river) Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Samara, and Volgograd.

Get in

River cruises down the Volga operate during the summer months (early May to end of September). Dozens of boats operated by different companies run from Moscow to Astrakhan. One way or return cruises may be reserved to/from practically any city along the Volga. Turflot.ru and infoflot.ru are several sites that offer tours.

Sample price for cruise: Moscow to Astrakhan (one-way) with three daily meals is RUR 15,000 (approximately 500USD). Without meals, approximately RUR 8-9,000.
