WE ARE SAMARA PEOPLE

Dear virtual guests of Samara region!

 

We would like to introduce to you the Samara region on the Web.

Not all aspects of our provincial life are yet reflected on the Web, especially in the English part of it. The amount of information in English cannot be compared with that in Russian. Nevertheless, you can take a glance over the resources that Samara servers offer you.
The most general information about region may be found on Samara region Administration server www.adm.samara.ru . It gives us data about: cities and rural areas, nature and industry, climate and population, authorities and social institutions, etc. There you’ll also find the geographical map of Samara region.

 

  

One of the most ancient periods of history, I century B.C. is well described by archaeologists on the site, dedicated to the first Slavs on the Volga: http://www.uic.ssu.samara.ru/~arch/ 

 

 

Samara, being closed for the foreigners for many years during the Soviet period has a well-developed spacecraft industry. The time came – now we can open these pages of the history.
