Адвокат не должен набирать слишком много дел; если излишек не всегда доказывает корыстолюбие, так уж во всяком случае убивает талант.

  • TOUR OF OLD CITY OF SAMARA

9 Фев, 2017

The tour starts at Revolution Square and ends at Glory Square. It's a good idea to walk this route. Old Samara is full of unique buildings from different time periods. Alexeevskaya square was the central square of old Samara. The square was renamed into Revolution Square after and in honor of the October Revolution.

Leningradskaya Street or Samara Arbat is located roughly one block down Kuibyshev street from Revolution Square. Fountains, flowerbeds, small shops and boutiques, restaurants and cafes, street musicians can be seen in this street.

The strict silhouette of a Lutheran church (kirche) stands out on the comer of Kuibyshev and Nekrasovskaya streets. It is one of the oldest Lutheran churches still standing in the Volga region. The church was built in the Gothic style. One of its buildings is now home to the German national and cultural center.

If you walk down Kuibyshev street a bit further and then up Leo Tolstoy street, you will reach Samara State Philharmonic. The building was built to replicate the Samara Art Nouveau style of the 19th century. The Philharmonic's prized possession is the organ that was first played in 2001.

Three memorial sites from old Samara are located just a bit further down on Frunze street. The first is Alexei Tolstoy's manor , currently home to Samara Literary Museum. This museum doesn't only enable one to see how the great Russian writer lived, but to hear lectures and seminars on literature, modern art, architecture and photography.

Further down is the Roman Catholic cathedral. Today is the tallest building of the old Samara. The Cathedral looks like it belongs in a European city much more than it does in Samara.

Next to the Cathedral is the Alexandra Kurlina house. She was the wife of a Samara merchant, and the house, built in 1903, was the first Samara house built in Art Nouveau style. This building was one of the most expensive pieces of real estate in the city at the beginning of the 20th century. Today it is home to the Art Nouveau Museum.

Kuibyshev Square is only a few steps away from Kurlina's house. It's one of the biggest squares in Europe (17,4 ha area) which is almost an entire hectare bigger than the Red Square in Moscow. Samara Opera and Ballet Academy Theatre is located at this square. There is a monument to Valerian Kuibyshev, revolutionary.

As you walk on Shostakovich street from Kuibyshev square down to the Volga river, it is impossible not to notice a magnificent red building. This is the Samara Drama Theatre . It was built in 1851 and burned down in 1854. The stone building at Theatre square (currently Chapayev Square) was only erected by 1888. A monument to Vasily Chapayev, one of the Civil War heroes (1917-1922) can be seen in front of the Drama Theatre. For a long time this sculpture was the biggest one in the USSR. The monument was created in Saint Petersburg and sent to Samara.

Samara is home to the famous Zhigulevsky beer. Zhigulevsky brewery is one of the oldest in Russia. It was built in 1881 by Alfred fon Vacano, a descendant of Austrian brewers.

A visit to the Iversky convent with an incredible view of the Volga would be a great finish to the walking tour.
