Fishing on the Volga
Almost all the Volga region is a genuine paradise for the fans of fishing
In 1817 the first steamship was floated onto the Volga. Since that time shipbuilders
of the Volga region have been developing and improving in every way the glorious
traditions of their forebears. The variety of the ships, wherein the tourists
are offered to make a voyage, is great. The modern steamships have all the necessary
infrastructure to provide you proper vacation, such as: comfortable state-rooms,
wide promenade decks, delicious food and, of course, professional excursions.
Now we'll come up aboard of one of them, and our exciting voyage will begin.
We are going to make a trip from Tver, almost from the very embouchment of the
Volga, till its delta, the Caspian sea. We are going to stop in the most interesting
cities where we will get acquaintance with the ancient monuments, folkways of
various nations, taste its national cuisine, get various souvenirs. And our
cruise will be ended with the magnificent scene — blooming lotus fields! Are
you ready to start the voyage? Then — unmoor!
Following the strict logic, our voyage along the Volga should be started not
in Tver aboard of the ship but in a small village Volgoverkhovie. Everything
here has a humble appearance: a stone with an inscription and a small chapel.
A stream which is easy to overstep springs out from the ground. Exactly this
stream is destined to become a mighty river and to run a way with the length
of several thousand kilometers. Here the wood bridge only a few meters wide
is built, the first one across the Volga. And now imagine what huge steely and
concrete bridges we will see afterwards.
