The Volga Embankment
Take a stroll along the embankment of the Volga (Europe’s longest river), and take in the beautiful views both across the water and of the city. The walk will take you past a number of cafés and restaurants, which you can stop at if you find yourself in need of a refreshment, or you can take a rest at one of the nearby pavilions. The most picturesque part of this walk is at the end, where the Volga and Kotorosl rivers merge. Once you’ve captured the perfect panoramic shot, be sure to turn your back on the river and appreciate the view of the beautiful, gold-domed Assumption Cathedral.
