Description Samara, known from 1935 to 1991 as Kuybyshev, is the ninth largest city in Russia and the administrative center of Samara Oblast. It is in the southeastern part of European Russia at the confluence of the Volga and Samara rivers, on the east bank of the Volga which acts as the city’s western boundary; across the river are the Zhiguli Mountains, after which the local beer (Zhigulyovskoye) is named. The northern boundary is formed by the Sokolyi Hills and by the steppes in the south and east. The city covers 46,597 hectares (115,140 acres), with a population of 1,164,685 (2010 Census); the metropolitan area of Samara, Tolyatti and Syzran has a population of over 3 million. It is about 300 kilometres (190 mi) from Kazan, 410 kilometres (250 mi) from Ufa, 340 kilometres (210 mi) from Saratov and 235 kilometres (146 mi) from Oral, Kazakhstan.

Samara is a city in southwestern Russia, framed by the Volga and Samara rivers. The central Samara Regional Art Museum, housed in an ornate mansion, exhibits Russian paintings from the 16th century onward. Nearby, Stalin’s Bunker, designed in WWII to protect the political leader, is now a subterranean museum. Farther along the river, Samara Zoological Park is home to monkeys, jaguars and Nile crocodiles.
