Travel photos : Russia 2007 : River Volga

River Volga

On our second day in Kazan we made a trip to River Volga. We went to Kazan river port to find out the ferry schedules. Most of the ferries were going too far as we wanted to return to Kazan for the night. Finally we found one that only went to the opposite shore of the river and back.

Nevertheless, Volga is a big river. To cross it by ferry take almost half an hour. The ferry took us to the village of Studenets were we left the ferry for the time it was serving some other villages. We spent some time on the shore and took the same ferry back to Kazan.
