Since we were born there, Russia is the country that we visit most often.

Samara bend (Volga river) 2007 - Жигулёвская кругосветка
The great Russian river makes a bend near the city of Samara. Together with the shape of Volga’s tributary, Usa, this bend provides a configuration that allows to make a 250-km roundtrip, always going downstream (you just have to transport your vessel by land for less than 10 km once on your way). Legends say, that a famous Cossack ataman, Stepan Razin, used this way to optimize his raids. We follow his steps. (Or how would you call those on the water?)
