Kubychev Square is the city of Samara's main square with the Opera and Balley Theatre located right there. Altough it is the largest square in Europe, it is just a square that may be worth looking up if you are in the area anyway. The Drama Theatre, the Strukovsky Park, and the Volga River are within walking distance from there.

Great example of Stalins time architecture. Bigest square complex in Europe and a nice place to take photos! Very interesting experience! Strongly recommend to visit. It is quite near in 5 minutes walk from the Drama theater - one of the symbols of Samara.
