If you want to have a romantic date with a girl, it's a nice place to watch the sun going down. It's a bit distant from the city center and sometimes there is an unpleasant smell. It's quite a small place, might be crowded.

Nice panorama of Zhiguli Gate - place, where Volga river runs between 2 mountains. Take the bus 1 or 50 from the Main Train Station (far stop near the tram rails). Just 500m feet walk in the direction of bus from the stop "Upravlenchesky Tsentralny", and you at the place "Vertolyotka" ("Observation point "Helicopter runway"). You can be more lucky... More
