The beautiful city of Saratov on the Volga River-merchant, commercial industrial. It was founded in the year 1590 and since then occupies an important place in the region. The early history of the city-solid white patches. Where exactly is the first fortress was laid is unknown, but in the 17 century city existed and was not once mentioned in the Chronicles of the time. A long history has given the city a lot of monuments that have managed to survive to the present day. Churches, public job sites.
Since the early 90 's, the town became into decay, factories stopped, there was no money to take care of the streets was not leisure-all or earned, or survived. But with the city's 200 began gradually began to rebound. And today the city GOL can do a lot of beautiful pictures.
Photo of Saratov is actually difficult. In Saratov and its satellite Engels has one feature that sometimes prevents photographers-fine dust, which brings out the Zavolzhje and it makes the sky almost white. This greatly hampered. The good thing is that this phenomenon is not constant and mainly the sky is clear and the southern bright. Then the city is beautiful, especially in the summer, despite the 40-degree heat.
If you decide to arrive in Saratov and walk with the camera on its streets strongly advise grab CAP, baseball cap, scarf and stock up on water. 40 degrees in the shade in Saratov in the summer is a common thing. The Sun will all 50.
Heat in Saratov case usual and always brolis′ the most affordable way-planted trees. Saratov green city-was and still is. If not for the trees, then live it was a lot harder.
It is worth noting that this city is an example of how can perfectly coexist different cultures. Traditionally in Saratov and region resided and Orthodox and Catholic, and Muslim Tatars, Russians and Germans. Never had problems.
