With population of more than a million people, Samara is the seventh-biggest city in Russia. Tsar Fyodor founded the city in the sixteenth century as a guard fortress. It has a very long river embankment and the highest railway station edifice in Europe. The railway station in Samara was built in recent years and is the highest building of a train station in Europe; the total height of the spire is just more than a hundred meters.
Samara is one of the largest industrial cities in the Russian Federation and as such, it has serious ecological problems despite the fact that it has several big parks. Other points of interest are the Samara Regional History Museum, which is the largest museum in the Samara region and is currently located in several buildings. The Samara Art Museum is one of the major museums in the region. Currently, the city has more than twenty museums.
The Samara Academic Drama Theater, named after Gorky, is famous because Nikolai Gogol began his professional theater career there with the comedy "The Inspector." The Samara Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre and the Samara Center Theater of Young Spectators' SamArt were built in the thirties and all of them are still operational. The winters in Samara can be very cold, so be prepared for them if you decide to visit the city in the winter.
Although Samara is a large Russian city, there are not many Samara hostels available for visitors to the city. There is a lot of variance in the prices of different hostels in Samara and as a norm, cheap hostels get booked very quickly. In general, most Samara hostels are very good, especially for Russian standards. Almost all Samara hostels are located in the very center of the city and you can easily get there from the train station.
