Samara State Philharmonic

If you walk down Kuybyshev street a bit further and then up Leo Tolstoy street, you will reach Samara State Philharmonic. The building was built to replicate the Samara Art Nouveau style of the 19th century. The Philharmonic's prized possession is the organ that was first played in 2001. The organ is known for its incredible tone quality and range – 52 tones, which allows the Samara organ truly sound as “the king of instruments”.
