Volgograd,a City with 3 Names

Welcome to the heroic city of Russia, the city of Volgograd! Its former names were Tsaritsyn (1589–1925) and Stalingrad (1925–1961). After your arrival at the airport, you will be transferred to the hotel. You can use your free time to relax after the road and take a walk on your own around the city.

If we have enough time after arrival, we can visit the ethnographic museum-reserve Old Sarepta. It is the largest cultural center of Volgograd, dedicated to the German settlement of the 18th century, which appeared by the will of Catherine the Great. Three centuries ago Sarepta was a major scientific and economic center of the region. The local scientists played an important role in development of Russian medicine, physics, linguistics. Nowadays here the interactive museum complex is located, comprising historical and ethnographic exhibitions, theatrical excursions, works of artists, photographers. Sarepta`s gingerbreads and watermelon coffee will amaze you with their tasty and unusual flavor. You can also taste the famous mustard and mustard oil, very delicious in the region.
