Samara is a very diverse city. It is a merchant town and an important aerospace centre; it is athletic, musical and youthful. Back in 1916, Boris Pasternak, Russian poet, novelist and future Nobel Prize laureate, wrote: "Samara is the best, the most sinful, most elegant and most comfortable part of Moscow, cut out from the city and transplanted on the banks of the Volga."

Camel Mountain is located 4 km from Shiryaevo. The contours of its eastern section really do look like a resting camel. The mountain is about 4 km in length and the highest peak is 326 m. It is a great place for sightseeing because of the incredible view of the Volga that opens from its viewing point. Today, Camel Mountain is a favourite training spot for mountain climbers from all over Russia.
