Samara Oblast travel guide

Monuments · Lookouts · Specialty Museums
Samara Oblast encompasses the southeastern part of Russia's European territory and includes the heavily industrialized region along the Volga River. Covered with coniferous and broadleaved forests, the region rose to prominence during World War II, when plentiful oil deposits made it attractive for the development of a new industrial area far from the war front. Although the region as a whole offers little in the way of tourist attractions, a growing number of visitors add the city of Samara to their itinerary because of its lively cultural scene and pleasant riverfront areas.
