Central part of the city.

Translation: "parking for idiots. Don't block the gates."



































Различные виду на Волгу и берег Самары.

































Всяко разно. Далее будет интереснее.

Very nice pics. A lot of people don't believe me when I say Russian cities are full of modern cars and streetscenes.

beautiful lakes and green field, some places are developing (new buildings) where as some pictures the places look run down. Wonder what it like to live there,

Charming historic center, too bad for some derelict beautiful buildings. Didn't like the new areas that much, too dense. As for the Volga and the surrounding landscape: priceless!

Loved the squirrel pictures, very cute!

I do too. In future please post all self taken photos in the Urban Showcase section. We move them once, but if the same people continue to post them here we will have to start deleting threads. Thank you
