What travelers are saying
- The view of the river here is amazing. There are pArks to relax in and plenty space run or ride a bike. In winter it is icy and slippery on the footpath though. Supposedly, in summer, the sunset is lovely.Written February 28, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- If you enjoy science, illusion, fun and critical thinking for all the family, this is great place to visit. Super friendly, solution-oriented, and energetic staff! The magnetic fields and optical illusions reminded me of Mystery Spot in California. Well worth it for the price.Written March 12, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The most spectacular viewpoint in Samara.
Once there was the plant's helipad.
Now it is a great place to enjoy a stunning view of the city on one side and the Zhiguli Gate and the Volga below on the other.
After a large-scale restoration, it has become even better and more beautiful here. We made a new tier of the path, planted a lot of ornamental plants, set up a swing.
I always try to bring guests of the city here.Written September 5, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- It is a huge square located in the historical district of Samara. According to Wikipedia it is the biggest square in Europe which covers 15 hectares.Written March 14, 2020
- We visited this on our first trip to Samara in Feb 2019. The tour was only available in Russian, but thankfully my wife was able to provide additional translation where I didn't understand. The tour guide is extremely knowledgeable and is more than happy to share more than just the standard tour speech.
It is a very cool place to get an insight into how important Kuybyshev (now Samara) was to the Soviets during the war and to understand why Stalin decided to have the bunker built here. The fact that none of the surrounding embassies/consulates were aware of the structure is quite incredible.
Highly recommend this attraction.Written December 14, 2019
- It’s a cool street to wander down. There are plenty of shops. It is rather long so put on your walking shoes.Written February 28, 2020
- This is beautiful small museum dedicated to Art Nouveau. Well worth a few hours with a guided tour. Bit short on exhibits but the design is sublime. Staff are very helpful.Written January 30, 2019
- A large stadium located on the outskirts of the city between two major highways - Moskovskoye Highway and Democratic Highway. The territory is simply huge, everything has been demolished around, new grass begins to grow. The stadium itself is very large, surrounded by a high fence with three passage gates. The gates are equipped with optical sensors for reading barcodes on tickets. There are many metal detectors out there. The line passes quickly. The stadium is multi-storey, four floors. Even the highest and cheapest places offer excellent views of the field. There are many toilets, as long as they are clean and tidy. Overall, the impression is extremely positive. You have to go far to the bus and tram stop.Written January 4, 2021
- It’s a unique sculpture with a great view of the river in the background. A surprising find by the edge of the river.Written February 28, 2020
- This is the oldest park in Samara, located on the banks of the Volga, not far from the Samara Drama Theatre.
In 1936, it was transformed from a city garden into a city park of culture and recreation named after Maxim Gorky. A concert stage, a gate, a fountain were built here, paths were paved and a monument to Gorky was erected.
During the summer, children's attractions and cafes are open in the park.
Thematic exhibitions and concerts are often held.
The most interesting thing is the flower festival, when the park is immersed in the most beautiful flower installations.Written July 31, 2022
- First of all, this museum was officially opened in 2001. Right at the entrance of the building, a genuine Soyuz rocket is found, and for me it was the most iawesome thing of the museum. Apart of this, the museum in general is small, with the exposition hall Samara Cosmic, located on the first floor, as the main exhibit, which includes parts of space crafts (like engines, combustion chambers, photo equipment, and so on), pictures and explanatory graphs & devices. There is a nice small garden in front of the museum.Written May 19, 2019
- The monument to Prince Grigory Zasekin, the founder of the city and the first voivode, is located in Samara on the Field slope of the Volga embankment.
It was opened in 2014. The prince is depicted on a horse with a banner depicting the Savior Not Made by Hands.
The height of the bronze figure is 8 meters.
The sculpture looks great against the backdrop of the Volga.Written August 27, 2022
- This ski resort is located within the city, on the outskirts of the city towards the airport. Here is a training slope, a children's slope, a tubing slope, and a large mountain. All of them are equipped with lifts. Lots of people on weekends and therefore there are long queues for the ski lifts. There is a rental point for equipment, prices are affordable. On the territory a cafe called “Three deers” is located, where you can have a snack without leaving the resort. Large parking lot, but it fills up very quickly and it is also difficult to get in and out of it at lunchtime. Measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19: Requirement to wear a mask when entering equipment rental. All in all a good place to ski on weekends.Written January 5, 2021
