Overall impression

A conglomerate of several villages.
Proximity to the sea: Volga!!! It is quite dirty, but I guess it will still be possible to swim in it in the next ten years.

Attitude to foreigners

It’s ok – there are many students of different nationalities, local people do not offend them.

Impression of local population

Local people are Ok, but with their special attitude towards different things.


In winter it’s very cold, in summer it’s very hot. It is only possible to live here in spring and autumn.


There are many universities: Polytechnic university, University of Medicine, Architecture and Construction university, Agricultural university, University of physical education, and Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration.

Quality of medicine (quality and cost)

You should go to private hospitals only. In my opinion, there should be signs near free state hospitals telling “Our medicine is dangerous to your health!”

Transport (road access, quality of roads, level of driving, gasoline cost, public transportation)

There are big and small minibuses, they cost from 12 to 45 RUR.
Travelling abroad: only through Moscow, or by bus to other CIS countries.

Prices (cost of living, food, entertainment)

One person can live for 15000 RUR per month (not including rental fee). The food costs as everywhere in Russia. There’s a symphonic orchestra and an organ in the city. You can swim in Volga or go fishing – the road to the countryside takes only 15 minutes now, after the construction of the new bridge.

Job (search complexity, level of salary)

You can earn 30000 RUR per month if you are smart enough. Salaries higher are a matter of chance, only if you are lucky.

Housing (cost, availability, rent, purchase)

There are many offers, a flat costs from 10000 RUR per month, private house is even cheaper. Buying apartments is also quite inexpensive.


Walking in the streets at night is safe.

Women \ men (for dating)

It is easy to find a girl in the city center – on the Alley of Heroes.

Internet access (availability, price)

Internet is good, but prices are high in comparison with the capital.

The region's economy (crisis, inflation)

Economy is dying. Factories are ineffective, I’ve got no idea why they still operate.
