Togliatti is considered as Russia’s automotive capital. The car manufacturing company, covering an area of 500 hectares, was constructed in a record-breaking short time.

But the mountains are stretching along the right bank of the Volga, making an intricate chain of steep hills split by ravines and canyons. They are different in height (extemding up to 300 meters above water level), Sometime rising sharply, then going down sheer cliffs into the river or sloping far. The forest grows on the mountainsides. Rare birds, animals and unique plants are found in this area. This wonderful area is worthily called the “Pearl of Russia”.
