Get in

You can get the train from Moscow, from the Kazanskii station

Get around

Trams and Trolleybusses run throughout the city, as do minibusses or 'marshrutka'


As the home town of Lenin, it's worth visiting the Lenin Memorial Centre and Gardens and muesums based in his former houses. There is also a museum dedicated to the poet 'Goncharov' and the war memorial at the end of the main street 'Ulitsa Goncharova' offers breathtaking views over the Volga.


In winter, try cross-country skiing along the Sviaga river, in summer take a boat ride over the reservoir.


The city's main shopping centre 'Tsum' is basic to say the least but does offer some basic shopping.




Hotel 'Venets' is the most popular hotel, just opposite the Lenin Memorial Centre.

Get out

The capital of Tartarstan, Kazan, is a stunning city just 7 hours train ride from Ulyanovsk.
